Students were introduced to the art of Pablo Picasso and then sketched out a Picasso-like portrait.
Before next class I had my #1 helper (my wonderful husband) cut a 2x4 scrap, we had left over from one of our many home improvement projects, into enough pieces for this class. I cut the hook off of wire clothes hangers and drilled a hole big enough for the hanger to go in.
The next class was spent bending the wire hanger into a shape the student wanted, placing it into the hole in the wood and covering it with a knee high nylon stocking.
A coat of gesso was applied to the nylon and then students spent 2 more classes painting their Picasso inspired portrait sculptures using acrylic paints.
