Cubism Still Life | Ages 8 - 13

Cubism Still Life | Ages 8 - 13

About this workshop

The experimentation of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque while in France was the revolutionary concept of presenting multiple views of objects in a single painting “Cubism” so powerful was the concept that it is still one of abstract artists valued tools for creating images. The principles and concepts that define cubist artworks, are that objects/subjects are broken up, analysed, and re-assembled in abstracted forms—instead of depicting objects from a single viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context. Often plains or the geometry of objects intersect at seemingly random angles, removing any coherent sense of depth. The background and object’s plains interpenetrate or overlap one another to create the shallow representation of depth or dimensional space. This is a major characteristic of the cubist intention in creating images.
