It's time for another Kids Get Arty. I really enjoy our art explorations with famous artists. So far we have explored Romare Bearden, Jackson Pollock, Henri Matisse, Andy Warhol and Vincent Van Gogh.
Today, I am excited to share our artistic exploration of Pablo Picasso. Wanting this to be fun and kid friendly, I chose to focus on his more abstract art and had the Lil Divas make self portraits.
Here's a breakdown of what they did:
1. Make a large circle (face).
2. Cut the face in half with a line down the middle that turns it into 2 faces.
3. Add eyes and a mouth (or two).
4. Add hair and any other features as desired (neck area).
They decided to get creative with their coloring, using bold, vivid colors and lots of them.
The finished products were wonderful.
The portraits are bright, bold and unique -
much like the Lil Divas themselves.
