Art Club - Picasso Pictures

During the Art Club sessions the children have been learning about Pablo Picasso. Inspired by his portraits, they made some of their own.

First they had a go at using oil pastels. Next the children sliced up pictures of themselves and rearranged them to make a cubist style image. This eye-catching art work is now on show in the main corridor.

Amazing Picasso Facts:
Picasso was accepted to the School of Fine Arts at age thirteen after taking completing his entrance exam in a week. The normal timing for this testing period was one month!

At age sixteen, Picasso attended Madrid’s Royal Academy of San Fernando

Picasso made his first trip to Paris in 1900 which was considered the art capital of Europe.

Picasso learned to speak French.

I am always doing that which I cannot do,
in order that I may learn how to do it.~Pablo Picasso
