So it's the week of Halloween and I thought it would be great to get the Picassos doing something a little witchy.. lol. But instead of just painting a boring old witch we turned it into a lesson in Picasso... Pablo Picasso that is!
So I gave them a little intro to the work of Picasso, they'll definitely have to revisit their namesake, but this short intro video is enough to get them started on our Picasso inspired witches!
We also looked at these 10 famous Picasso paintings just because this type of art is so unfamiliar... I wanted them to get a feel for what it could look like so when they started to paint their witches they wouldn't feel the need to try to 'correct' their art to make it conform!
They drew half the face in profile and the other half looking straight ahead and we worked on black paper today. Take a look at the results :)
My Thursday afternoon Picassos were a little reluctant to get into this weird faced witch.. lol.. but after they learnt a little more about their namesake and understood that Picasso didn't paint the way he did because he wasn't good at classical painting but rather he was such a master that he dared to revolutionize the way art was interpreted and presented they gave in and decided to try their hand at the Picasso-inspired witch :)
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
