Art Lessons for Kids: Picasso Faces


Today the kids learned about Cubism and Pablo Picasso!
We Googled the definition of Cubism:

  1. An early 20th-century style and movement in art, especially painting, in which perspective with a single viewpoint was abandoned and use was made of simple geometric shapes, interlocking planes, and, later, collage.

Once we learned the definition of Cubism we learned about the most famous of the Cubists: Pablo Picasso. MakingArtFun.com has a great biography on Picasso that is geared toward children. Check it out HERE.  After our Art History lesson it was time for the kids to create some Picasso faces.

Materials used:
Printer paper
Crayons
Scissors
Glue sticks
Old Magazines

The kids started out by drawing the layout of their faces in black crayon. To begin a Picasso face draw an oval, or a large U that is rounded out at the top. Draw a zigzag line down the middle of the face, so it looks as if half the face is looking to the side. Add a neck and hair if desired. We expanded on our previous warm/cool lesson by coloring each side of the face either warm or cool. From there the kids cut facial features from magazines and glued them to their faces. They got a little wacky and even used kitty features from a cat food advertisement.

I love this project for several reasons:
It's inexpensive.
It reuses old magazines.
It's doable for almost all ages.
There is no right or wrong way to do it.

If you've done this project with your kids let me know how they liked it! :)
