Blue (and Yellow and Red and Pink and Gold) Period

A practice room at our school is getting remodeled (or something?) and a closet clean-out unearthed these cool cardboard guitars. The Curse of the Art Teacher obliged me to take them and squirrel them away for a future project. 

On an Instagram friend's suggestion, we looked at loads of Picasso's guitar themed work - steel sculpture, representational and abstract paintings and (!!!) a cardboard guitar:

"Still Life with Guitar" Pablo Picasso, 1913

Students used paint and collage to personalize their axes, and they turned out awesome.
