Your students will become artists for a day at this exhibition tour and practical workshop inspired by ‘Picasso and Paper’.

Picasso created art with everything from café tablecloths to newspaper cuttings. He created sculptures with torn and burnt pieces of paper, assembled collages, and worked with pastel, gouache and watercolour.

In small groups, students will explore this vast range of Picasso’s works on paper from across his entire career, and engage in discussion about the works they see.

Students will then return to the Clore Learning Centre to create their own responses using paper for drawing and collage.
