Hands-on Workshop “Picasso’s Studio”

Saturday, May 11, 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 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 & Jewelry
Little known to the world—and overshadowed by his paintings and sculpture—is Picasso's jewelry, created during the 1930s for his companion and muse Dora Maar. Though the exhibition Picasso Black and White does not include any jewelry, examining Picasso’s line quality and compositions will inspire you once in the studio.

Join artist Sandie Zilker (exhibitions coordinator and department head, Jewelry and Enameling, Glassell Studio School) for an opportunity to design your own pendant in torch-fired enamel.

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
