Then we talked about how we couldn’t see the other side of their face, but how Pablo Picasso wanted you to be able to see both sides. So we turned the profile into a more normal head shape, so we could see the other side.
I had the girls draw in lines across the face to create different sections.
Then I told them that they could go crazy with oil pastels! All colors and facial features were allowed. They had so much fun with this and thought it was so silly to have so many different colors. We talked about how different colors might make them feel different ways….and how they could make a “sad” person or a “happy” person by the color choices that they picked.
That was basically it! Just a simple afternoon exploring some fun concepts!
Have a great week everyone! I’ll have our next art lesson in two weeks…and it’s going to be on Frida Kahlo! It’s going to be really fun!
Until then, feel free to check out my last two projects inspired by Degas and van Gogh.
Have a great two weeks everyone!
