First Grade Gets The Blues…

Standard

And the happies! : ) The last couple of weeks, I have been discussing Picasso and his “periods” with the first graders. We compared and contrasted with paintings from each period and had some interesting discussions about how people used to dress and, it never failed, any time I said, “Picasso fell in love,” kids would fall out of their chairs, totally disgusted. Highly entertaining.

After we recovered from the discussions of feeling sad and then happy, we created our own Blue Period portraits and Rose Period portraits. These are some of the results!

Saw this post on Pinterest last night (I mean, really, what did we do before Pinterest???) and I can’t wait to do it with my kids! It’s from There’s A Dragon In My Art Room and it looks like lots of fun. It will also be a nice move from my recent discussion of Picasso’s Rose period that we had for our Valentine’s Day Rose Period Hearts Project.
I will for sure be posting these ASAP!
