Another lesson with Sonia Delaunay

Standard

I had an opportunity to see some of Delaunay’s work both in Paris and in Bilbao. I love her bright colors and simple geometric shapes. Students looked at Delaunay’s art and textiles in a PowerPoint and they created these images in tempera paint.

I had the students look at her work and we discussed the way color and shape interact.

We also discussed her work as a textile designer and how she and her husband Robert were the initiators of the Orphism or Orphic Cubist Art movement.

They could copy elements of her work or create their own version.
