Cubist Collage

IMG_4436IMG_4443IMG_4448We spent a week looking at 'Isms of Art', and a glorious day looking at the Cubist Collages of Picasso and Braque. I took a risk with Liam's guitar and brought in that and my clarinet - it was lovely to give the children something really serious to draw and the ensuing atmosphere of focus and concentration was a highlight of my day, as I gradually added a new medium to the mix every five minutes. Finally, we photocopied the pictures and built them into a crazily eccentric collage - I think Picasso and Braque would have been proud of use!IMG_4444
