Se7en Picasso Portraits…

When I heard Lilla A was calling for Self-Portraits I knew it was time for us to do a little Art-Appreciation… and some exploring in the world of Picasso…

Let’s begin with some fabulous links:

So I gave everyone a paper plate and left them to it… And believe it or not eight kids all came up with eight completely different techniques and eight very different portraits…
Hood #1: The king of junk art got all the recycling out to assess his options.


Hood #2: Decided that paper mache was the way to go.


Hood #3: Wanted to cut and paste and needed really shiny paper.


Hood #4: Wanted to make a paper collage.


Hood #5: Wanted to make some shiny bits to shine through in the sunlight.


Hood #6: Is all about the snipping…


Hood #7: Painting is life!!!


Hood #8: Once he got over the horror of drawing on a plate… he is a very organized fellow and drawing is for paper!!!


And here you go:

The Gallery


That’s us!!! Hope you all have a fun weekend!!! And thanks Lilla A for another great project!!!
