Barcelona’s rich artistic heritage nourishes the work of contemporary artists in one of Europe’s creative capitals.

  • What is the focus of the Museu Picasso? What are some of the works in the museum?
  • Choose one contemporary artist. Write down important aspects of his or her work. How does the work reflect the artistic tradition begun by Picasso, Gaudí, and Miró?

Review your notes. On your own or with a classmate, pick an artist whose style you enjoy. Pick a photo of a person, a building or an object from a magazine, and draw an interpretation based on that artist’s style. You might use different techniques to build on that style. After you are done with your interpretation, describe your work. Give a title, a date, and what about the artist you selected inspired you. Exhibit your work in the class.
