On February 17, 2011, ESU #11 hosted an Art Enrichment Workshop for area art teachers. This workshop was facilitated by Christy Kosmicki from Holdrege High School, and was designed for the artist/educator teaching grades three through twelve. It was designed to broaden the teacher’s understanding of cubism, help adapt these concepts into the existing district curriculum, and develop individual examples of the following cubistic innovations: scaffolding, overlapping planes, simultaneous views, simplification of form and figure deconstruction & reconstruction.
The morning was spent exploring the complexities of Cubism and generating a variety of preliminary ideas/drawings using conte crayon, pen & ink, pen and brush, collage and the Xerox machine. The afternoon was spent developing unique, individual, preliminary ideas into a finished drawing on cold press illustration board.
