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!
