Cubist Collages December 7, 2008

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 10:39 pm

Cubism and Pop Art were combined in this 8th grade project.  The students looked at Picasso’s cubist paintings from the 1910s and compared them to the 1980s photo collages of David Hockney.    In the assignment, students made many small observational drawings of cereal boxes, using a viewfinder for assistance.  The small drawings were collaged together, sometimes matching, but mostly not.  The final result was a large, fragmented representation of the food item.  Some students have also started photo collages, which will be posted as they finish.
