Expirementing with Picasso’s art at home!
The school program regarding young Picasso continues its journey digitally and is expanded to other creative periods of the significant artist, offering a series of activities for all ages!
The first activity concerns Cubism, an early-20th-century art movement whose pioneers were Pablo Picasso and the painter Georges Braque. In Cubism objects as well as the human form are consisted of geometric shapes.
The school groups that participated at the SNFCC program attributed the analysis of the form similar to the shatters of a broken mirror.
The students' idea lead us to "fragment" our portraits in order to create a small sculpture, inspired by the principles of Cubism.

At the second activity, we experiment with Synthetic Cubism. But what does it mean?
By using the technicque of collage, Picasso and Braque evolved their cubist perspective.
The artists glued paper (papier collé) and various materials on the canvas’ surface, in order to create diverse compositions οf colors, shapes, media and forms.
Picasso’s compositions and specifically the artwork ʽʽLa guitareʼʼ (1913) intrigued the school teams, which participated at the SNFCC program for the young Picasso. Inspired by the students’ ideas, we create unique collages with everyday objects.
