During my Fine Arts Minor at Brooklyn College, I was intrigued by Cubism. In my art history textbook, the piece I interpreted and painted (see above) only appeared in gray scale and the internet had not yet been born. Yet, I saw the color within the lines. 

Throughout my teaching career, I used Cubism to help students overcome the fear of the empty page with the ability to explore everything in terms of planes and angles using rulers, shades and tints. New grants are awarded regularly to those who are looking to overcome these fears and color within the lines. 

If you’re an artist – whether visual artist, arts educator, performing artist, a musical artist, a writer, or a digital artist – and want to make your mark on the world, find the grant you need to achieve your dream on!

Hundreds of years from now, a student could be studying YOUR work. Who knows what your period’s name will be? Millenism or DigitalDots?  

This is the original painted in 1909 by Pablo Picasso, Woman and Pears Fernande Olivier. According to the Met Museum, "Cubism was one of the most influential visual art styles of the early twentieth century. It was created by Pablo Picasso  (Spanish, 1881–1973) and Georges Braque (French, 1882–1963) in Paris between 1907 and 1914. The Cubist painters rejected the inherited concept that art should reflect nature…So they reduced and fractured objects into geometric forms, and then realigned these within a shallow, relieflike space. They also used multiple or contrasting vantage points."

Today, you can visit MOMA, The Museum of Modern Art, The MET and many other museums around the world to see some of the original works from and inspired by this period.
