Okay, let me begin by sharing, this was not my project idea. I needed one more quick project for October and a fellow art teacher friend shared this one with me. First, I presented a brief history on the life of Picasso where we focused on the development of cubism. The lesson was presented in a directed drawing format. I always like to keep them guessing when I present a lesson this way. Instead of revealing what we are drawing, I focus on shapes and lines and how they are combined to create form. It doesn't take too many steps until students begin to guess what they are creating. This one took awhile but they did quickly catch on to the fact we were creating like Picasso. They are drawn on construction paper and colored with construction paper crayons and texture plates. Texture had to be added in at least one area but could be utilized as much as the student wanted.
