Hands-on Workshop “Picasso’s Studio”

Saturday, Mar 16, 2013
1 p.m. - 5 p.m.

Beck Building
5601 Main Street Map & Directions

Pablo Picasso is recognized not only as the most important artist of the 20th century, but also as one of the most significant artists in recorded history. The exhibition Picasso Black and White reveals the artist as a perpetual leader and never a follower, continually reinventing his style, repurposing materials, and extending traditional techniques.

Picasso & Collage (March 16) | Picasso & Printmaking (April 13) | Picasso & Jewelry (May 11)
At these half-day workshops, join the workshop leader and an MFAH educator to view and talk about a few works of art by Picasso, and then enter the studio at the MFAH Glassell School of Art to exercise your own creativity. Beginners are welcome!

• Meet in the lobby of the museum’s Beck Building.
• Please bring your confirmation form.
• Contact lectures@mfah.org with any questions or concerns, or in the event that you cannot attend once registered, so that someone from the standby list may participate.

Picasso & Collage
Together with George Braque, Picasso co-invented Cubism, a style that came to incorporate collage. By adhering found materials to the surfaces of drawings and paintings, Picasso and Braque revolutionized Modern art and influenced all subsequent generations of artists.

Led by artist Patrick Palmer (Glassell Studio School faculty chair/dean), this workshop allows you to explore Picasso’s collage technique, and to try your hand at combining drawing and collage.

Admission
Capacity is limited.
The workshop includes a brief visit to Picasso Black and White; art-making instruction and materials; beverage and snacks.
• Materials fee: $10
• Workshop fee: $25 MFAH Members / $35 Nonmembers
