In this mid-range youth class, we will explore artworks from 1910-1920’s Paris. During this survey of Cubism, we will critique works by Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Jean Metzinger, Albert Gleizes, Fernand Léger, and Juan Gris. We will focus on artistic philosophy, sketchbook practices, master copies, and creating original artworks in the Cubist style.
Students taking selected courses at ESAC will be recipients of Creative Cargo kits. Sponsored by the Alabama State Council on the Arts, Creative Cargo will give students the ability to “take the studio home”. ESAC and ASCA hope to encourage young students to continuously create and innovate during their free time. Because of ASCA’s generosity, we are able to outfit the kits with unique art supplies that are not in the typical household junk drawer. From high quality mediums to technical tools, students will have access to items that will enhance their interest in the visual and ceramic arts.
“Intro to Pottery” Students will be gifted the following:
