Get your students excited about learning art history and Cubism by creating a Pablo Picasso portrait with oil pastels. Fill up your art sub plan folder with engaging, low-prep art projects that are easy to implement for substitute teachers.

Teach your students about abstract art, the artist's Blue Period, and Picasso's signature style of drawing a portrait simultaneously front-facing and in profile. Step-by-step picture directions and the included PowerPoint presentation with close-up, detailed photos will guide your students from start to finish. It's perfect in order to teach art to special needs students.


Are you going to be absent and need a last minute art lesson for the substitute? In search of an activity for a remote learning or distance learning situation? Relieve the stress of being absent! This Picasso portrait art project is structured in a way that students can do the reading and practice drawing in one lesson, and the actual project when you return the following week.

Planning on a maternity leave and looking for engaging, ready-to-go art projects that even an uncertified art sub could handle? No worries! This lesson includes everything from the activity to self-assessment resources that will keep students learning while you're out on leave.

Fill up your art sub plan folder with thorough art lessons that will motivate your students and not overwhelm your substitute. Leave copies of the game in a labeled folder inside the tub along with some dice. Once your students know how to play the game, they're easy to leave with a sub!


Are you trying to cultivate self-reliance in your art room? This Pablo Picasso art game makes for the best and most productive early finisher activity for your students.

Set up a choice-based art center where students select an activity amongst different ones. Print out the game board and directions back to back, put them in a labeled folders, and let them pick what they'd like to create. This is similar to a directed drawing activity in which students are guided through the art process.


If you're an art teacher looking for a differentiated art lesson that boosts independent thinking, problem-solving, and skill-acquisition, this will do the trick.

In art, there are four main ways to differentiate: by the outcome of the project, the task at hand, the supplemental resources given to students, and the amount of support offered to each student. Despite students selecting designs from the same Pablo Picasso portraits game board, the outcome of each project is unique to the creator.

I've included three ways students can generate their design. The first is the game board where students roll the die to select their parts. The second is a "you pick" board. Both of these are printables. And lastly, for teachers needing engaging lessons during distance learning, I've added digital spinner wheels!

You will create a Picasso-style portrait by rolling the die and collecting the different parts required to create it.

  1. First, draw a large head and shoulders on construction paper.
  2. Then roll the die to select a nose from the first column and draw it.
  3. Next, roll for the lips in the second column.
  4. Then, roll for the front-facing eye and the profile eye in the third and fourth columns.
  5. Lastly, roll twice to select the ears from the fifth column.
  6. Then, draw the profile of a face down the middle of the head, connecting the nose and lips to this line.
  7. Add hair, a shirt, and other unique details to your design.
  8. Use oil pastels to color it in, blending the colors with your finger.
