Picasso Blue Period (Year 7, 2017)

The main objective of our Picasso Blue Period project is to understand and explore tone by restricting the colour pallet to just one colour. Students work from black and white primary images of figures draped in fabric and empty rooms, and recreate the tones identified in the images using blue, black and white paint. The relationship between colour and mood, use of line and contrast, proportions, painting techniques and analysing an artist are further learning objectives achieved in this project.
