Cubism 7th and 8th

Students researched the art movement known as cubism and the 2 artists that started this movement, Picasso and Braque. After they had researched Cubism they presented their information to the classroom. Next we created our own cubism artwork by drawing from a still life.  To start with the students used a ruler and drew at least 5 lines through out their artwork. While they drew the still life they had to change the way we normally see a drawing. Cubism looks like a broken mirror so we wanted to match the cubism style. Students also learned how to collage, paint wood texture, and create value gradations.
