Pin It
Please note that the art history film - Goya's Ghost will be shown again on Tuesday, 29th of April * 10:30am *  in a different classroom with different equipment.

Everyone who attended on the 15th of April who sadly missed the ending due to computer problems, can see the film again and the ending. It is a very complex film, so a second viewing is a good way to catch all the fine details.

PLEASE EMAIL - - to let me know if you wish to attend. FREE of Charge - of course. I hope you will come again. I felt so badly when the computer crashed and we could not share the ending of the film together.

Picasso (1881 - 1973)

One of the Most Famous Figures in 20th Century Art, Picasso's revolutionary artistic accomplishments brought him universal renown and an immense fortune

Pablo Ruiz y Picasso, known as Pablo Picasso (1881 - 1973) demonstrated extraordinary artistic talent in his early years, painting in a realistic manner through his childhood and adolescence. During the first decade of the 20th century, his style changed as he experimented with different theories, techniques, and ideas.

Picasso is widely known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore.

Salvador Dalí  (1904 - 1989)

The Most Grandiose Spanish Artist of the 20 Century, Salvador Dalí (1904 - 1989) is best known for his contributions to the Surrealist art movement. 

His eccentric manner and attention-grabbing public actions sometimes drew more attention than his artwork, to the dismay of those who held his work in high esteem, and to the irritation of his critics. 

Dalí was a skilled draftsman and painter who attributed his brushwork to the influence of the Renaissance masters. Dalí's expansive artistic repertoire included drawing, painting, writing, film, sculpture, and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media.

A PRIMITIVE SOUL * This A&E's Biography movie thoroughly documents the life and work of Picasso. Picasso's Spanish roots are depicted in detail through the images that reoccur in his work as a painter.

ARENA * Rare documentary made before Dali's death. Includes photos of characters throughout his life, insights into his life and art works. Shocking footage of him leaving the hospital and seeing him so frail. Film also shows Dali's Alka-Seltzer commercial and questions the possibility that he signed blank sheets of paper.

LITTLE ASHES * Beautiful, tragic and historical film about the young life and loves of artist Salvador Dalí, filmmaker Luis Buñuel and writer Federico García Lorca.
