It was an artsy week at "Picasso to Pop Art."
Today, the campers learned all about Picasso. In the morning, Camp Founder Judy Crosby came in to teach the campers about Picasso's use of Cubism. The classes then made colors wheels. Midday, the campers learned about Picasso's line portraits and tried to emulate his style. In the afternoon, the campers used colors in their paintings as a way of conveying emotion.
Look at those color wheels!
