This À la cART lesson introduces students to Picasso’s "Guernica" Painting. They will draw a peace dove and create a negative background space with recycled newspapers.

  • step-by-step instructions with pictures
  • Video Instructions: step 1 “How to Draw Picasso’s Peace Dove,” step 2 “Create Negative Space,” and step 3 “Outline.”

Materials Needed

I design À la cART lessons to be completed with simple art supplies as it is difficult enough trying to cart materials from one classroom to another. This Peace Dove project does need something extra: recycled newspapers.

Approximate Time Needed

The time needed will depend on the age group of students but usually takes approximately 45 minutes for the read-aloud introduction, art lesson and clean up.

Read Aloud Introduction

You do NOT need any art and / or art history knowledge to teach À la cART lessons – it is all laid out for you. The read-aloud introduction introduces the artist and explains art movement and techniques pertinent to the lesson; with questions guiding student conversation.

Reference Materials

I like using visuals to support my lessons. Due to copyright infringement, not all art pieces are included but I have listed the artist and title of the artwork: Picasso's Guernica. You can do a Google image search and then share with the class by projecting on a smartboard or whiteboard.

Perfect for grades TK – 12, homeschooling
