Picasso’s Rose Period Hearts

Roses are red, Picasso was blue
We love learning about Picasso and would like to show you!

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner,
I thought I would re-post one of my favorite projects.

My little artists created various projects inspired by Picasso’s Rose Period.  
Picasso painted with blue paint for 4 years until he met a wonderful lady, fell in love and started using pinks, reds and roses!

First, students folded a large piece of paper, with a pencil created half a heart, cut it out, traced upon previously painted 18 x 24 sheets of tagboard. These tag boards are placemats when we paint with tempera paint.
 It took about 40 minutes to complete 2 large hearts.

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 in depth

the directions, I just tell them to create fun designs with paint. They are wonderful students who love to create fantastic projects. This is why I love to teach!
