Invite students to look at the world like Pablo Picasso did, analyzing geometric patterns. Create a Cubist still life, focusing on the shapes seen from one's Picasso viewpoint.
Invite students to look at one of Picasso's early Cubist works, such as "Pot, Glass and Book", or "Green Pan and Black Bottle." Encourage them to find geometric shapes in the paintings. Provide various texts for students to view focused on Picasso's life and career. This may be done individually or in small teams.
Arrange a simple still life on a table with objects that interest the age group. Provide time for student groups to view and discuss the still life. What aspects of Picasso's style do they see in the still life?
Students investigate geometric shapes in the still life. Describe them to each other. Encourage them to make connections between what they are seeing and their research.
Students draw these geometric shapes, using a different color Crayola® Oil Pastel for each shape. Complex forms, such as a teddy bear, will have several geometric shapes, each in a different color of pastel.
Students cover their work area with recycled newspaper. Wet one completed object with a Crayola Paint Brush and clear water. Then fill a brush with one color of Crayola Washable Watercolors and paint the wet surface. The wash will unify the individual geometric shapes into a recognizable whole.
The remaining objects can be filled with a wash of watercolor.
