Picasso Portraits

3rd and 4th

Have you ever since Pablo Picasso's wild and abstract portrait paintings? At the beginning of class I showed a power point with lots of abstract portraits created by Picasso. Some of the students first reactions were "strange" "weird, messed up, awesome, freaky, colorful, crazy". Then we all started drawing a profile view of a person's face. Next we blended the profile view with a front view of a total different face. Some faces happy, sad, excited, and many different expressions.

Next we learned colors that symbolize happiness and sadness. Students choose colors to match the emotions on their abstract faces. To make the artwork more abstract we added many patterns and colors into the background just like Picasso!

  1. I love these! They are really learning how to express themselves and communicate through their artwork. Not to mention at such a young age. I fell in love with expressing myself through art at a young age too and its something I can't imagine living without. They'll thank you forever Miss Breault.
