Hands-on Workshop “Picasso’s Studio”

Saturday, Apr 13, 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.

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!

Picasso & Printmaking
Picasso is renowned for working with a variety of print techniques that extend his drawing into a new medium. Although some of Picasso’s prints are reinterpretations of themes from his drawings and paintings, he also created wholly original prints as independent works of art, and was commissioned by publishers to create prints that complement texts as varied as ancient Greek mythology, an anthology by Baroque Spanish poet Luis de Góngora y Argote, and Honoré de Balzac’s 1845 short story The Unknown Masterpiece.

During this workshop, led by artist Suzanne Manns (department head, Works on Paper, Glassell Studio School), consider Picasso’s various styles of drawing, and then scratch the surface by experimenting with drypoint and collography.

Capacity is limited. SOLD OUT
The workshop includes a brief visit to Picasso Black and White; art-making instruction and materials; beverage and snacks.
