Art Two assignment for Wednesday:
See the images below. They are works by Pablo Picasso during his Blue, Rose and Cubist periods. Choose a period for which your "Stations of the Cross" painting will be based. Refer to the board for group assignments and station number. Also, consult the scripture or legend for more information. Your paintings must reflect one of the three time periods of Picasso and depict your Station of the Cross. Think past obvious images and really get to the feeling and heart of that particular event. Come up with a plan. You can either design a sketch (paper on the bookshelf over the scissors) or create a Photoshop piece to use as a reference. Try to be free and expressive like Picasso. Don't worry about perfect proportion and realism as much. The heart of the image is the most important here.
Also, See your blog assignment below. Go ahead and comment and see those images while you are here.
Mark and Justin - I spoke with Justin about this yesterday. Your assignment is Station 11. I want you to make an actual cross out of wood that would fit on top of one of our classroom tables lying down. Come up with a plan and design and a list of materials. Email me the list. My thought is to have the Stations around campus with #11 as one of them. We could have a container of nails and slips of paper or canvas that could be written on and literally nailed to the cross.
