Independent Learning Challenge Year 7 INFORMATION This piece of work should take 3 hours (6 weeks of 30 minute home works). Make sure that you ask your teacher for help at any time over the 6 weeks that you are doing this assignment – we are here to help! You are graded on this piece of work and your result will affect your APC level for this half term. (Levels sheet overleaf) Students who do not submit this homework on time or students who have plagiarised their work will receive a grade lower than their ability. Un-submitted work will be completed in 3 hours of after school detentions. The Weeping Woman, By Pablo Picasso Name: Form: Date set: Date Due:
Summary of Tasks and Instructions You will be looking at the painting called ‘Weeping Woman’ by the artist Pablo Picasso and you will make a project based on his work and the Cubism styles you are studying in lessons. You will then create tonal drawings of peoples faces from different viewpoints. The people you draw should be showing a strong emotion e.g. Surprise, sadness, anger. You will then re-draw this image using the same style and colours as Picasso has for his ‘Weeping Woman’. You are expected to complete this booklet and submit the following 3 pieces of work: 1.A study sheet based on Picasso and his painting ‘The Weeping Women’ 2.Your own drawings of people showing emotion. One drawing will be a frontal view, the other a profile view. (see below for details). 3.A final piece where you combine your drawings from Part 2, but drawn in the style of Picasso’s ‘ Weeping Woman’. You will use the same colours that Picasso has in his painting. You will use one or more of the following materials to complete this piece: coloured pencils, collage, paint. Task 1: HINT To help you complete Task 1 accurately you will need to do some research either in a book or on the computer.

Use coloured pencils if you have them Find a colour image of ‘The Weeping Woman’ and glue it in this box. (HINT: look on the suggested websites)
TASK 2 – TONAL DRAWINGS – Research Images Find two images of people showing strong emotion. One should be a view of the face from the front. The second should be a profile view (from the side). Glue the images you find in the boxes below. Glue research images here
TASK 2 – TONAL DRAWINGS Find two images of people showing strong emotion. One should be a view of the face from the front. The second should be a profile view (from the side). Glue these images on the opposite page. Complete 2 tonal drawings in the boxes below. Use your knowledge of tone and texture to help create a realistic drawing.
TASK 3 – Your version of ‘The Weeping Woman’ In the box below, or on a separate piece of paper, you will create your final piece using all previous research and drawings. 1. Look carefully at ‘The Weeping Woman’ and note how Picasso has used two different viewpoints of a face. The edge of the face looks like a profile, but we can still see two eyes and two nostrils. Try to recreate a similar design using your drawings from Task 2. 2. Now look again at how Picasso has used lots of straight and jagged lines and edges. Make parts of your design more broken, sharp and jagged. 3. Look back at the list of colours you wrote down in Task 1. Use these colours to fill in all the different sections of your design. Include a background! (You can use one, or all three materials listed: coloured pencils, paint, collage) 4. To finish off your piece make some lines and edges bolder than others to help make different parts stand out. 5. Is there any other technique you can use of Picasso’s? If the answer is yes – USE IT!!!
