to explore the possibilities and gain an understanding of using one colour to
create an artwork.
- use tints and shades of blue to emulated & appreciate
the work of Picasso's Blue Period
- rah, rah, bloody rah! Let's explore some
Introduce and discuss the cubist works of Braques, Picasso and any cubists you
know of :)
yellow chalk ( I find it paints under easily) to draw an 'imagined' cubist fruit
bowl on a large sheet of art paper. They are not allowed to use many curved lines.
NB I find it helps to demonstrate this section so that you can encourage a variety
of fruits and to point out 'filling the space'.
Demonstrate mixing and using tints and shades of blue. ie they are only to use
blue, black and white. As well as demonstrating the diagonal brushstroke technique
of the Cubists.
Children experiment with adding their own tints and shades to their chalk outlines.
Make sure you paint each section with a different shade or tint of blue.
Once dry experiment with outlining techniques. I've tried charcol, black paint
applied with a thin brush and think black texta. My favourite is the charcoal
but it can make a huge mess.
Make sure you wash your brush thoroughly to ensure you don't get undesired colour
b)Make sure you dry your brush so that you don't have runny paint.
either love or hate the Cubist period. Where do you stand onn the issue AND
why? One paragraph to be glue on the back of the artwork.
