My kindergarten classes are great this year! I decided I'd do some Picasso inspired self portraits with them this week. We discussed Dora-Maar, and how she did not look "normal". We talked about the different perspectives showed in the work..and the unusual color choices. I was amazed by how many found the humor in making themselves "not normal". In the past, my kindergarten students had a hard time grasping anything other than realism. This group is all in...and I'm excited to introduce them to some other abstracted works!!!
