Picasso Cubism Guitars

RECAP: Blind Contour Drawing

DISCUSSION: abstract art: last week when we saw the flowers did we have any problem deciding they were flowers? Was there a question in our minds about what they were?

Show Picasso's Three Musicians Now look at this piece? what is it?
where is it?
what do you think you see?

Cubism: objects are broken up, analyzed, and re-assembled in an abstracted form—instead of depicting objects from one viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context
Drawing the same object from several perspectives
What is perspective (viewpoint)

Shade and Tint: light and dark. show them how to add in blocks (like a map) to add in these details

ARTIST: Pablo Picasso 
(25 October 1881 – 8 April 1973)
He was a Spanish painter, draughtsman, and sculptor.  
He is best known for co-founding the Cubist movement and for the wide variety of styles throughout his work

He painted in a realistic manner through his childhood and adolescence; 
During the first decade of the twentieth century his style changed as he experimented with different theories, techniques, and ideas.

His revolutionary artistic accomplishments brought him universal renown and immense fortunes.
He is the best-known figure in twentieth century art.
