Our Many Colored Days...

We began our lesson on abstract art and Picasso's Portraits by reading this book by Dr. Seuss and discussing feelings and color emotions.  This story could go with many different art projects, but since it talks about being all "mixed-up", I thought it would go with our Mixed-Up portraits.  We drew our Picasso Portraits with oil-pastels, divided the paper with one vertical line and three horizontal lines, and used watercolor paint to fill each space in with color.  I showed a PowerPoint presentation with a variety of Picasso's paintings while they were working so they could see his abstract portraits and how colorful they were.
