1st Grade Picasso Pumpkins

Artwork by Selena

After viewing a selection of more "realistic" portraits, first graders were introduced to Pablo Picasso, his life, and his Cubist style of portraiture.  Then, in the spirit of Halloween and with a little guidance from Mr. O via the Smartboard, they drew and painted these Cubist-styled Picasso pumpkins.  When one sees how naturally the students pick up on this style, it's no wonder Picasso thought of his own Cubist art as childlike.
