Picasso Faces

This years’ group of 2nd graders have been getting their fill of art history. While I wait for other classes to complete a project, I’ll do a quick art history lesson with the classes that are finished. So this time we learned about Pablo Picasso! We watched a super awesome slide show of his work, while we discussed how he made faces look that was so different.

Then I set the kids loose on all the cardboard scrapes left over from last year’s Black History Month project.

Few guidelines: divide the face into sections, paint each section a different color. Once dry, use a colored Sharpie to add pattern, then find scraps for the facial features. These were the results!
