All of my students created a Picasso inspired project this semester.
K-1 students created Picasso's Flowers, by tracing their hands and adding green stems with markers then testing their cutting skills by creating the flowers.
2-3 students created a collage in the crazy abstract style of Picasso using cut paper and then finishing with a black paint outline.
4-5- This was the project of the year! We started by studying Picasso's Old Guitarist and then broke down the parts and drew the man together as a class. We then discussed Monochromatic color schemes and how you make tints and shades of the same color. The students had a lot of trouble with proportions when we first started this project so it took some time but i created scaled boxes which i had the students trace on their papers to then draw each body part in. The results aren't perfect but then again, what Picasso art work is?
