About the Class: Pablo Picasso was the co-inventor of collage, from the French coller meaning “to glue.” In this class we explore ways to create works using methods popular among the surrealists such as “cubomania” and “parallel collage.” These exercises teach us
that the creation of art can be as simple as the rearrangement of existing elements. We culminate by creating a collective collage mural from the scraps of the previous works demonstrating that art can truly be made of anything!
In the Kandinsky Study we will explore the world through the eyes of the artist. By identifying line, curve and shape we begin to recognize that everything we see around us is made up of these simple components. This is the way Kandinsky saw
the world. We then take a stroll through our “Kandinsky Art Gallery” to study the way that Kandinsky transformed the shapes we see around us by arranging them into beautiful works of art. Next we make our own Kandinsky using stencils that are patterned directly from the paintings in the gallery. Students will have access to a large variety of medium (paper, watercolors, pastels, etc.) to play and let their imaginations run wild!
