Modern Picasso Week 2At Art Camp yesterday at The we continued to study Modern art.  Pablo Picasso was our focus.  We painted “Child with Dove” from 1901.  The girls did an amazing job on this one.  We talked about how this piece was done in the beginning of his “Blue” period and that it sold in 2012 for $58 million.  They said they probably wouldn’t sell their paintings.  LOL!  And we do get a bit messy when painting, some more so than others.  This is Sloan who has been painting with me for several years.  She just can’t help getting it all over her arms.  Sloan

We saw a fascinating sculpture exhibit of Picasso ‘s work at MOMA.   It is described as ” the least familiar of Pablo Picasso’s work. It occupies the entire fourth floor of the museum and features more than 150 sculptures organized chronologically. It aims to advance the understanding of what sculpture was for Picasso and how he revolutionized its history through a lifelong commitment to constant reinvention. ”
