Pablo Picasso is known for many different paintings and fun sculptures, but did you know of his Rose Period artworks?
Picasso’s Blue Period lasted for 4 years. It was a sad time in his life and he primarily used blue paint in his works.
After that sad time Pablo fell in love and splashed many of his canvases with lovely colors such as pinks, reds, corals and purples. This became known as his Rose Period which focused on bold shapes and colorful patterns. In these two art lessons my students created delightful flowers and hearts inspired by Picasso’s Rose Period.
First Project: Picasso Hearts
Students used a piece of 18″ x 18″ tagboard, drew a heart, painted it with tempera paint, then cut it out when dry. It took 50 minutes to complete one large heart.
One student created an abstract heart inspired by Picasso’s cubism!
These were created by students in my art club.
I never have to explain the directions, I just tell them to create fun designs with paint. They are wonderful students who love to create fantastic projects.
Second Project: Picasso Rose
Students created a big flower on 18″ x 18″ sheets of tagboard with tempera paint. It took 50 minutes to complete one large flower. We let them dry and then cut them out.
