We are working on a unit of portraiture, and today learned about Picasso!
I had the students first draw lightly with pencil. We then discussed color, and how it can transform a work & how it impacts the mood/emotion of a picture. We had recently used Sargent Art Paint Sticks on another project, and I thought it would be perfect for this lesson as well. If you have not used paint sticks (there are several brands)....they are WONDERFUL! I really do like Sargent's version (I've tried a few!). The kids really enjoyed creating their portraits, and it was so fun to hear them giggle as the worked! I may do another post of them....I still have two more classes.
If you have any questions about Paint Sticks....let me know!!
