Picasso’s Collages

Picasso did not only paint pictures.  He also worked using different materials.  He made sculptures and pottery as well as collages.

Collage is a picture made by sticking down pieces of paper, photographs, etc with glue to make a new image.


Look at these examples of collage by Picasso.


Picasso and Guitars.

Lots of Picasso’s artwork featured guitars because the instrument came from Spain, like Picasso, and he wanted to show his Spanish identity in his work.

Look at these Works by Picasso and spot all the guitars.



Draw a Guitar.

Look at this picture of a guitar.


How many strings does it have?  What shape is it?  Is it all the same colour?

Try and draw a guitar as carefully as you can.
