    Picasso & Cubism Inspired Bust Project Picasso & Cubism Inspired Bust Project Document Transcript

    • Picasso  &  Cubism  Inspired  Bust   Sculpture  I                        Mrs.  Duckworth  &  Mrs.  Holtz     Cubism  was  a  20th  century  avant-­‐garde  art  movement  pioneered   by  Pablo  Picasso  and  Georges  Braque  that  revolutionized   European  painting  and  sculpture.    Picasso  demonstrated   uncanny  artistic  talent  in  his  early  years,  painting  in  a  realistic   manner  throughout  his  childhood  and  adolescence;  during  the   first  decade  of  the  20th  century  his  style  changed  often  as  he   experimented  with  different  ideas  and  theories.    Picasso  is   known  for  his  blue  and  rose  periods,  his  African-­‐influenced   period,  and  for  various  types  of  Cubism.    Picasso  was  most  well-­‐ known  for  his  paintings,  but  he  was  also  a  sculptor.     The  activity:    In  this  project,  we  have  a  chance  to  produce   reinterpretations  of  the  works  of  Picasso!    The  simplified  forms   of  Cubism  lend  themselves  beautifully  to  sculpture   reproductions.    By  looking  through  the  vast  array  of  figurative   paintings  done  by  Picasso  during  his  Cubist  phase,  we  find  many   possibilities  for  sculpture  adaptations.       What  you’ll  do:   1. Analyze  and  discuss  the  portrait  paintings  of  Pablo  Picasso  and  other  Cubist  artists.     2. Find  your  favorite  Picasso  portraits  at  one  of  the  following  websites:   a. http://www.pablo-ruiz-picasso.net/ b. http://www.picassohead.com/ 3. Choose  your  favorite  3  portrait  paintings  and  print  them  in  color.    For  each,  write  the  title  of  the   painting  and  year  it  was  painted,  then  write  5  aspects  of  each  painting  that  you  like  or  find   interesting,  and  explain  why.     4. Look  at  your  wire  and  nylon  sculpture  and  your  favorite  paintings.    Then  do  a  few  thumbnail   sketches  of  how  you  can  interpret  the  paintings  into  your  sculpture.   5. Choose  your  best  design  and  complete  a  final  color  drawing  of  how  you  will  paint  your  sculpture   in  the  style  of  Picasso.    Your  drawing  should  be  from  multiple  viewpoints  based  on  your  wire  and   nylon  sculpture.     6. Paint  your  final  Picasso  inspired  bust  using  acrylic  paint.       Tips:   • You  can  use  multiple  paintings  as  inspiration.   • Look  at  the  different  shapes  and  how  they  work  together.   • Consider  multiple  faces  within  your  bust.   • Decide  on  a  color  scheme  –  it  doesn’t  have  to  be  realistic.   • Be  sure  your  sculpture  is  interesting  from  all  angles.     Requirements:   1. Three  printed  color  images  of  Picasso’s  portraits   2. Five  aspects  of  each  painting  that  interests  you   3. Thumbnail  sketches  of  possible  interpretations   4. Final  color  drawing,  from  multiple  angles,  of  best  design   5. Create  final  Picasso  inspired  bust  using  a  high  level  of  care  and  craftsmanship
