Picasso once said, “Good artists copy; great artists steal.” Well, inspired by the “Picasso Looks at Degas” exhibition, the Clark and the Albany Times Union teamed up to give Capital Region students (grades 4 through 12) the opportunity “steal” from Picasso and create their very own self-portraits. The drawings were entered in a contest for the chance to win some very cool prizes.
Today, we are proud to announce the two winners!
From grades 4 through 8:
From grades 9 through 12:
Margaret and Julia will receive a slew of wonderful prizes, including a gift certificate, publication of their work in the newspaper, and a gift bag of Picasso-related goodies from the Clark, as well as a special tour of the “Picasso Looks at Degas” exhibition and a picnic dinner.
Congratulations to the winners, and to all of our wonderful artists, whose work is featured in the slideshow below:
