Happy Birthday Pablo Picasso!
After our "PicassoPoint" presentation, we covered our plates in tint mixtures, sharing thoughts of how the colors represented feelings as in the artist's Blue and Rose periods. We used magazines for our palettes since multiple classes were doing this activity - easy to tear off and start fresh when needed. Next, we used smaller brushes dipped in black to create the facial features, remembering that Picasso specialized in mixing up the parts of the face - a cubist technique. Picasso mastered realistic portraits in his teen years, so in most of his adult life he moved on to painting from his vivid imagination to challenge himself. We focused on enjoying ourselves and having fun, just like Picasso might have done on his birthday!
