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:
- My Kids Art has a great page for Picasso: biography, artworks and fun facts.
- Heaps of Picasso lesson plans and printables from AssociatedContent.
- Squidoo has a great Picasso page: Packed with links and ideas.
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:
That’s us!!! Hope you all have a fun weekend!!! And thanks Lilla A for another great project!!!
