Teacher Workshop: Picasso and the Modern Revolution

April 20, 2013
Ryan Education Center
$50; 5 CPDUs

Pablo Picasso is one of the most important artists of his generation. Together with George Braque, he pioneered Cubism and collage, two practices that revolutionized Modernist art of the 20th century and continue to influence the art and thinking of our time.

Picasso and Chicago, the first major Art Institute exhibition of this eminent artist in 30 years, presents a rare opportunity to examine the full gamut of Picasso’s artistic career. Drawing from examples in the exhibition and other areas of the museum’s collection, this workshop will explore the influence of Picasso’s work on long-established ideas about the nature, appearance, and role of art, specifically through the contributions of Cubism and collage. This workshop includes a studio session to connect collage practices with Common Core Standards in math and language. Teachers of all grades and disciplines are welcome.

This program has reached capacity and is no longer accepting registrations. For additional Teacher Workshops please visit the Teacher Programs Calendar.
