4th grade students examined Picasso’s paintings of the Mediterranean Sea. Pablo Picasso lived in the south of France and painted many different views of the beautiful sea. Students drew with pencils to sketch out their ideas, then painted with blue tempera paint and created various tints of blue as well. The students loved mixing their colors on the paper! After the students paintings were complete, they used oil pastels to outline shapes and add designs.
