Picasso for kids and young people
‘Make a Mask’ activity in ‘Yo Picasso Kids’, ‘Picasso & his Collection’ exhibition
Picasso & his collection
Yo Picasso Kids | Contemporary Media Lounge | I ♥ Art History
9 June – 14 September 2008
Yo Picasso Kids included two paintings by Picasso of his son Paulo, complemented by art-making activities that were developed to introduce children to the artist Picasso, his innovative ideas and his passion for collecting. Children were invited to enter Picasso's world of masquerade and make their own mask to wear and keep and create their own paper sculpture.
In the Contemporary Media Lounge young people were invited to sample contemporary media through live-streamed TV, music, videos, catalogues, journals and magazines from across Europe. Popular society and contemporary media offered inspiration for Picasso and the artists of his generation.
The I Art History program was developed especially for secondary school students. Art historians, curators, artists and Gallery staff presented illustrated presentations exploring key themes and works in the 'Picasso & his collection' exhibition.
