Picasso’s Flowers for Peace

March was Youth Art Month, and each week we covered a new artist; Picasso, Warhol and Van Gogh. 

Each class is working on a project based upon one of those artists. Kindergarten is learning about Picasso’s Bouquet for Peace, here are our masterpieces!  

They were all given different shades of green paper, which we folded in half, three times. They cut on their fold lines, then exchanged two paper strips with their neighbors. Making sure they had just six strips, they held up the extra two for me to collect. Then they glued down their strips. 

The next day, they traced around their hands, cut, and glued it down over the strips. Lastly using left over tissue paper, they glued it to the top of the paper strip!
