Just finished up one of my favorite Picasso projects that I did with my 1st grade artists.
Picasso: Studio Pigeons

Many of Picasso’s works produced during the later 1950’s show views through a window or out over a balcony. Many of these may have been inspired by the actual studio at
“La Californie” where Picasso worked.

What more could you love than birds created by little 7 year old artists?
Painted and paper birds with large brush strokes representing feathers complete this fun project.

and keep on creating!
