Amity Middle School in Orange students paint their own interpretations of Picasso masterpiece.

Amity Middle School students in Orange recently had the opportunity to paint their own interpretation of one of Picasso’s masterpieces.  The activity was funded by a grant awarded to teacher, Eleanor Stephens, by the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation (www.jamiehulleyartsfund.org).  Students will continue to study Picasso and how his work can be related to other disciplines; learning about Cubism, how his work reflects events happening in the world; and they will also write poetry based on their artwork.
