Public invited to view young Picasso art

June 19, 2015

Students from five NISD middle schools are exhibiting art work they created this summer at the “Young Picasso” Summer Cultural Fine Arts Summer Camp. Their art exhibit will be held on Thursday, June 25 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Holmes High School. It is free and open to the public.

Twenty-eight students have been attending the Summer Art Camp creating art “like Picasso,” using his style to inspire fractured, simplified, distorted, and abstracted art. The students made unique faces in bas relief ceramic with distorted layers of protruding noses, eyes, and mouths. They have also created one of a kind shirts with Picasso-style screen printed portraits, as well as large scale sculptures expressing Picasso’s concept of showing many points of view at once in one piece of art.

Participating schools are Neff, Pease, Rayburn, Ross, and Rudder middle schools. Camp art teachers are Joyce Muncy, Marguerite Campa, and Theresa Yasger.
