A line is a dot that went for a walk! Learn how artists like Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, and Fernard Léger used line to create people, buildings, and birds. In the Art Studio, we will be experimenting with contour drawing and blind contour drawing.

When you arrive, receive materials at the front desk to prompt an examination of a work in Picasso, Braque & Léger. Then, visit the Art Studio to put your discoveries into action.

Art can be a painting with oils, sculptures of marble, or a moving video. It can also be created with textiles and fibers. This Artful Afternoons, we will have special guest Joy Muller-McCoola, the artist who created No Stone Left Unturned in the exhibition Artists of the Mohawk Hudson Region.

Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque were the best of friends. They would talk about their ideas and visit one another’s studios. They created artwork together so often, it became difficult to tell their creations apart. We will look at the Cubist artworks of Picasso and Braque in Picasso, Braque & Léger, then head to the Art Studio to play Musical Chairs still life.
