Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document the art that is created in my beautifully messy New York City art room. Hope you have a nice stay!

Picasso Collages

Picasso Collages

My second graders learned about Pablo Picasso and made these collages. This project takes three 45 minute periods. On day one we cut out two face-shaped ovals. We drew and cut out a profile line with bumps for a nose, lips, and chin down the middle of one of the ovals.  Then we glued one of the profiles to the uncut oval. We added in 'wonky' picasso-like eyes. Day two we glued our head to a background paper, making sure to glue near the top so you have room for a neck and body. We collaged on hair, ears, a neck, and a shirt.  Day three we collaged on any last details to our shirt and we outlined our portrait with black tempera paint.
