In this 90-minute class, we will explore the work of perhaps the most venerated and ridiculed artist of the 20th century. While many distain Picasso’s abstractions, the emotional and moral component of his artist endeavors are complex and admirable. Although some see his paintings as child-like, Picasso’s complex and innovative renderings of people and historical events are worthy of study.
The class will begin with a 20-minute power-point lecture highlighting both Picasso’s early more realistic representations and his turn toward abstraction and cubism. A 50-minute practicum will follow the lecture. As a group we will produce a copy of a Picasso painting, replicating his unique vision of the human form. Upon completion of our paintings we will participate in a 20-minute critique of our paintings.
All supplies are included.
