Under the Influence of Art-Picasso

This week we learned about Picasso. The last time I taught a Picasso class, the students did a collage based on “The Three Musicians,” and I loved the results. This time, we did self-portraits. With Picasso’s Blue Period as inspiration, the children picked a color to use. We learned how to mix the color with black, white, and extra water to achieve different shades and appearances. I was amazed at how much some of these pictures resembled the artist. What do you think?
