2nd Grade Cubism Picasso Faces

2nd Graders learned about the artist Pablo Picasso.  They were fascinated and curious about the unusual faces he made.  We talked about the style of art he invented called Cubism. Cubism is a style that Picasso used to create paintings using cubes, cones, spheres and other geometric shapes.  After we looked at some of Piccaso's Cubist style artworks 2nd graders created their own using different shapes of construction paper, sharpie marker, and oil pastel.

We read this book by Jonah Winter.  This was a great book for 2nd Graders to read--they loved it!
