A Painterly Jaunt Into Picasso's 'Rose Period'

Classroom Open

Everyone has heard of Picasso but not everyone is familiar with the beautiful work from his Rose Period ('Rose' meaning 'Pink' in French)(following on from his well-known Blue period).

I've been captivated by Picasso's paintings from this brief moment in time and felt compelled to dive in and lose myself in the colours he chose, the mood and his compositions.

Come along on this painterly jaunt inspired by Picasso and his beautiful 'Rose period'...
