Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists-Picasso


Picasso (Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists)

My friend Nicole @ Mama to 5 Blessings and I are doing an Art Co-op that we discovered on Confessions of a Homeschoolers Website. Our first Artist is Pablo Picasso, a very interesting Artist but great to learn about. 

Pablo Ruiz y Picasso, known as Pablo Picasso (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈpaβlo piˈkaso], 25 October 1881 – 8 April 1973), was a Spanishpaintersculptorprintmakerceramicist, and stage designer who spent most of his adult life in France. As one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century, he is widely known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture,[2][3] the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore.

Information above was from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pablo_Picasso. Nicole and I get together every two weeks to study Art. We first read to them about the Artist and then we draw and paint and use the different mediums that each Artists used during that time. We also talk about the style,technique,and mediums. We are using the Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists books by: Mike Venezia. I really love these books, they are easy to use and very informative. 

We decided to draw and paint "The Three Musicians"
