This is an Art2Learn class, so we will learn a little about Pablo Picasso, his most popular art style that created the "Cubism" movement. We will learn a little about what was going on during this time in history as students explore playing with lines and shapes to create a self-portrait in this style. The will create their own portrait from a photo or by looking in a mirror, drawing on their own interpretation of this style. I will show a number of his portraits (none of his 'nudes' will...
The student will learn who Pablo Picasso and about the cubism movement that he began. They will view some of his paintings (I will not display any of his nudes), and create their own interpretation of 'cubism'. I will create along with the students and give instruction, but I encourage students to explore their own creativity and find their 'voice' using line, texture, and colors of their choice. They should feel free to 'paint outside the lines'! Class is informal and I will talk about Picasso and Cubism for the first few minutes, but then they are welcome to ask questions as we create our own interpretation of this art style.
Paper (I recommend watercolor paper. (I recommend a Canson XL "watercolor" wire-bound journal as a good beginners journal. The watercolor paper can stand up to paint and water, but works well for simple sketching as well as glue and collage material. They can be found in many Michaels stores, but I ordered my most recent one from Amazon: https://amzn.to/2XzEI0Q and it is the 9x12, though there is a 7x10. Just make sure it says "Watercolor" on the front. The 'Mixed Media" Canson XL is a good choice as well...just will not hold up to as much water if student will be doing much watercolor painting. - If markers will be used, the student could work on a heavier piece of paper ("cardstock"). Copy/printer paper will be too thin. -pencil & eraser - paints or markers (I used a Jane Davenport watercolors. They can be purchased at Michaels [call ahead to see if they stock them], if you're interested in getting them, or you can order them from Amazon: https://amzn.to/3iVERUm). - brushes - water jar - old rag & paper towels -Black Sharpie fine tip marker (for outlining)
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I will show some of Picasso's portrait paintings from the internet, but none of his "nudes" will be shown in this class.
