Picasso: Eyes on the World

by World Affairs Council Seattle

The World Affairs Council's Global Classroom was proud to collaborate with the Seattle Art Museum in conjunction with its landmark exhibition Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musée National Picasso, Paris. Pablo Picasso’s lengthy career spanned several world wars and crises, and each conflict exerted a presence in his work. The human suffering inflicted on his native Spain and the impending chaos of World War II, as well as his creative response to social issues such as human rights, poverty, and health, are reflected in his work throughout his career. The workshop, corresponding exhibition preview, and this companion resource packet illuminates how Picasso’s increasingly global society functioned as a catalyst and inspiration for his creative work. The resource packet includes lesson plans, video clips, interactive websites as well as a listing of full-length films, documentaries and books. Teachers will also find lesson plans related to world events in Picasso’s life (the Spanish-American War, the two world wars, and the Spanish Civil War).

Lets be abstract painters!

by Jacklynn Pollock

This lesson was created for 3rd graded art class. It teaches the student to research a a topic, answer questions, and then do an activity based on what they learned. They will be able to use this in future classes, not just art. This lesson is about researching 2 abstract artists, Elizabeth Hack and Devin Abrams. The students go to a web page provided and are to answer questions given to them on a worksheet. They will be put into groups of two and one student sill research one artist and the other student will research the other. There are also questions on the worksheet which need to be answered by both students which gives them a chance to work together. This lesson reflects intrapersonal intelligence by having the student learn about a type of painting and having them go inside themselves to create their own abstract painting based on what they have learned. The applying cognitive level is addressed by having the student apply what they have learned to their own painting. They will illustrate what they have learned about abstract painting and apply it.
