Picasso’s Landscape


4th grade studied various Picasso’s Landscapes. Students created, in pencil, many of the characteristics found in his paintings. Wavy hills, buildings, fun trees were all added. After the students created their drawings they used tints and shades of green tempera paint to create vivid paintings. They also mixed new hues of green on their paintings.
Lastly, students outlined with various shades of green oil pastels.

Supplies: 12 x 18 paper, tempera paints.

    Where have I been? I've never seen this. I feel like Picasso could be taught every year with a totally different focus and style. These are pieces I'd want to hang in my house to look at over and over again. The oil pastel on top of the paint is reallybeffective. We ran out of time with your painted crazy quilt project so most of the kids added oil pastel designs on top of the painted colors. They look amazing! I have to post them to show you what they did with your project.

    Thanks! I have done 2 units on Picasso. 1. The circus 2. Under the Sea with Picasso and me. The second, is the one we are doing now. I love the paintings by the sea. I agree about oil pastels on top of paint. Really fun and bright!
