Weekly artist exploration/journaling series: Week 2 Part 2 BREATHING #Picasso #arttherapy

WEEK 2 PART 2: Picasso

As we prepare for copying a favorite piece by Picasso, we’ll just have Picasso (as we did with Frida) as a companion as we check in with ourselves.  Write for 15 minutes about where you are in the moment.  Just stream of consciousness.  BREATHE PICASSO

Tomorrow we do a “reproduction,” which you’ll recall I like to describe as INGEST/DIGEST/REGURGITATE.  To practice getting in the frame of mind, quickly sketch while looking at Picasso’s work.  Move your eyes over the piece you’re looking at and start drawing.  You’re essentially doodling.  Just practicing.

You can also try my gesture drawing workshop which teaches a very Picasso-esque technique:

Part 1: INTRODUCTION

Part 2: GEOMETRIC SHAPES

Part 3: ADDING DETAILS

Part 4: ABSTRACTION

Homework:

Pick one of Picasso’s works that particularly move you.  You’ll find plenty of images online.
