October Featured Lesson
Pablo Picasso Faces
“Everything you can imagine is real.”
Born on 25 October 1881, in the city of Malaga, Spain, Pablo Picasso was destined to become the most influential artist of the twentieth century.
Known for his many periods of style, Picasso moved through his Blue Period, Rose Period, African Art Period, Analytic Cubism (which he created), Synthetic Cubism, Neoclassicism, and Surrealism throughout his career.
Many people know Picasso best for making the abstract faces that are reflected in this lesson. But he also painted realistically and Picasso sculpted, drew, and claimed to have invented collage.
Picasso made art until he died, in 1973. He was 91 years old.
September Featured Lesson
Georgia O’Keeffe Floral Portraits
“Filling a space in a beautiful way – that is what art means to me,” famously said by Georgia O’Keeffe.
Georgia O’Keeffe was the oldest of 9 children, born to an upper middle class family in Sun Praire, Wisconson. Georgia was artistic from a young age and unlike most families of the day, she was encouraged to pursue her talent and get
the education that would help her to reach her goals.
O’Keeffe often lamented that men told her she was one of the best women artists, when she believed herself to be one of the best artists (man or woman!).
Most famous for her large floral portraits, O’Keeffee painted and drew landscapes and she sculpted as well. O’keeffe worked well into her nineties.
