The 8th graders are working on a Cubism unit. They are understanding the concept behind Picasso’s art and how it was made. The 8th graders set up still lifes and took zoomed in photographs of the set up. They had to reassemble to photos to create the still life. It was challenging because things didn’t always match up and many holes were left unfilled! The students have been inspired by David Hockney’s photo collages, which are modern cubist versions of the Picasso originals. Next, they will be drawing objects and reassembling the fragments.
Look for more of these photo collages at the Morse School Art Show at Gallery 263 in April!
