A New Twist on the Old Masters

October 10, 2012 • After School Workshop

At Magical Minds Studio, we love when our students can create purely out of their own imaginations, but sometimes it’s important to incorporate into our studies the legacy of the renowned artists who have made art what it is today.

Recently in our After School Workshop, we had our students look at the master works of Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh. Both of these incredible artists, whose lives overlapped for only a few years, revolutionized the way in which the world is depicted in painting. For our students, learning about how abstraction, mark-making and palette can actually be truer to life than an image that looks just like the real thing opens up all kinds of possibilities.

In the images below, you’ll see our After Schoolers making projects inspired by these Old Masters!
