"Cubism is like standing at a certain point on a mountain and looking around. If you go higher, things will look different; if you go lower, again they will look different. It is a point of view" Jacques Lipchitz


Using Picasso’s Cubist period as a starting point, students will learn to visually de-construct a still life with an approach that encourages an extended understanding of classical cubist concerns.


Observational drawings that have been arrived at through this process of interpretive re-construction, will be used as a basis from which to develop a large scale cubist painting. In this way, students gain a working knowledge of the essential balance between 2 and 3 dimensions, and the interplay between representation and abstraction. 


The course is suited to students of all levels of experience.

Students will take home a completed work.
