 2nd grade learned about Spanish artist Pablo Picasso! They were very excited to learn about this very famous artist! Students learned that one of Picasso's favorite subjects to paint are portraits. But, not just any portrait. He used his signature style of Cubism to make his paintings abstract. Picasso would often paint both the front view and profile of a person at the same time! 2nd graders began by drawing an abstract head and nose in profile. The colored in the parts and cut out and glued the head to a contrasting background.

Next, students drew, cut out and glued eyes, ears, mouths, hair and whatever else they could think of to their head.

 Here are some finished portraits!!
