Picasso Faces-5th Grade

♠ Posted by ArtMuse in at 2:50 PM

Just finished this project with one of my 5th grade classes. They really loved it. We studied Picasso, cubism, showing two sides of the same object simultaneously-in this case a profile and front view of the face, organic and geometric shapes, and open and closed shapes. I found it to be a great way to teach some of the E's & P's of art. These are watercolor on 12x18" white paper and outlined with sharpie at the end. Enjoy!
