You will get to introduce your students to one the the world's greatest artists...Pablo Picasso, who was one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. Your students will be able to create an abstract "Funny Face" in the unique style that Picasso was known for.
I start my lesson with an introduction of Picasso by reading the book "Pablo Picasso (Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artist)" by Mike Venezia. My students learn about Picasso's life and are able to see examples of his work.
When I do this art lesson every spring...it is the talk of the school and one of everyones favorite art projects. There has even been parents who have had their child's project professionally framed and have them hanging in their homes.
See my lesson plan and examples of the steps your students will do to complete this fun and exciting project.
Don't forget to have them sign their name somewhere on their finished piece just like Picasso did!
