Educator Resources for Cubism

Creativity has a shape, and that shape is…a cube?! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby look at Cubism from all angles to get to the bottom of this influential art style. Explore how Cubists found simple geometric shapes in the world around them, and tinkered with multiple viewpoints within a single painting. Discover how Cubism broke the rules and changed the way artists looked at art. And learn all about how Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque joined brushes to launch the Cubism movement in the early 1900s. You’ll also find out about the artist who inspired them most! So get ready to think outside the box--with plenty of boxes, of course.
