Picasso Faces with Value!!

After Rousseau, Junior High students followed along in the timeline and studied Pablo Picasso. We also learned about VALUE (light to dark). Students were asked to create a portrait or self-portrait in a CUBIST style. They were also required to create at least 4 sections with VALUE. They were allowed to make it more recognizable or less recognizable based on their preferences. I also asked them to use patterns to make it more interesting. I am SO proud of all my Junior High Students for taking such pride in their work. You guys are AMAZING!!!!

  1. These are brilliant! I love the concept of their own self portrait combined with Cubism. I'll definitely have to try this one at at some point. What grade was this exactly? Did they simply use coloured pencils?
