Week 6: Cubism · July 6-10
Everything became a “cube” for the cubist artists. Cubism was one of the most influential styles of the 20th century. Braque and Picasso co-founded the movement, turning the art world on its head. Influenced by the geometric masks of African tribes, this style is characterized by dividing the picture plane into facets with multiple surfaces and vantage points.
Campers will create their own cubist masterpieces this week. Artists: Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Juan Gris, Alexander Archipenko, Raymond Duchamp, Jacques Lipchitz.
