Pablo Picasso’s three-dimensional forms are an extension of his playful imaginings about the nature of perception and spatial location. In this workshop, we will draw inspiration from Picasso’s innovations to create sculptural maquettes. Participants will begin by looking closely at Picasso’s planar sculptures on view in Calder-Picasso. Following the gallery visit, participants will work independently in the studio, experimenting with scale, visual planes, form, and void as they create three-dimensional works from two-dimensional materials.
Studio Sessions meet in the Anne Cox Chambers Wing Lobby. They are designed for adults, but all ages are welcome. Materials will be provided and will include various forms of paper and paperboard, X-Acto knives and scissors, and cutting mats, among others. No prior experience is necessary.
