Great Selfies Series: Pablo Picasso

In this hands-on painting and learning program, you will learn to paint in the styles of famous artists, while hearing stories about “the characters behind the canvas”.

Starting with Pablo Picasso, we will embrace the fact that we live in a modern world of "selfie" portraits and use that as a springboard to paint Cubist selfies. 

Becky Andersen will keep the class fun by uncovering scandalous secrets about the artist throughout the process. There will be mistresses, mischief and more! Feel free to BYOB, though the fee covers all the materials plus wine

No experience necessary. Becky is a seasoned educator and will guide you along every step of the way. Register in advance by Monday, February 5. 

Did you know?

It has been said that Picasso changed his companions as often as he changed painting styles. Many of his portraits are of his wives, mistresses and children.

Picasso was also a terrible student and was often thrown into detention.

 
For being a bad student I was banished to the ‘calaboose’ - a bare cell with whitewashed walls and a bench to sit on. I liked it there, because I took along a sketch pad and drew incessantly ... I could have stayed there forever drawing without stopping ” 
— Pablo Picasso
