PiCasso - Our First Abstract Artist
We loved learning about Picasso. We read books about him and watched a biography of him. We also read a funny book called "When Pigasso Met Mootise" We learned about his early painting and how he started as a realistic painter and became an abstract and later a cubist artist. We learned about how he used painting and colors to show how he feels. We made our own abstract self-portraits and had so much fun we made abstract animals when learning about important animal structures. To do their self-portraits students had to partner up and put their head to the side so one student could trace the other's side portrait without touching their face.
