Last summer on the Art Teacher Facebook page an art teacher, E. J. Gibbons put out a notice that he needed some more art for his 4th book in the "If Picasso" series. This latest one titled If Picasso Went on Vacation. Since it was the summer and I was (and still am) recovering from back surgery, I decided to give it a try.
I went as far as printing out two separate photographs, cutting them apart and putting them back together all mixed up. Because my understanding of cubism, which was developed by both Pablo Picasso and George Braque, is that the artist views his subject from a variety of angles and includes them all.
I enlarged one of my sketches, transferred it to canvas.
And around the holidays he sent this out. This screen shot is actually part of a slide show and I waited for my painting to view to snap the photo.
This experience was just SO exciting for me! Today my copies of the book arrived and I can't wait to share it with my students tomorrow!!
Thank you E. J. Gibbons for this opportunity!
And thank you Peter Depp for your help getting the photo converted.
