How to Decode a Picasso: An Art Writing Workshop


Jan 14,2017, 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM @ 826 Valencia (Mission Center)
Taught by Melanie Bridges Open to 12 students, ages 11–13 A two-week workshop January 14 & 21 Saturdays, 12–2 p.m. Find your inner art critic! Have you ever looked at a famous painting and wondered what all the fuss was about? Or been moved by a work of art and wished you could describe how it made you feel? In this workshop, we will learn how to craft our own unique perspectives about visual art. First, we will engage in group discussions about specific artworks by big names like Monet and Picasso as well as artists you may have never heard of. Then, it's your turn to pick an artwork to share. You will translate your observations into writing and present your interpretations to the group. Next time you visit a museum, you can be an expert on any work you see!
