Picasso Inspired Paintings – Grade 5

Standard
In 5th grade I squeezed in one last unit before the year finished out.  After their representational self-portrait drawing earlier in the year, I wanted them to stretch themselves artistically.  Because of that, fifth graders were tasked with created a Picasso inspired portrait painting.  At the introduction, I think most students felt really concerned, that they wouldn’t be able to take on this challenge, but after spending some time sketching, and planning, I think they started to feel more comfortable.

Besides, being inspired by Picasso’s cubist portrait’s, another challenge was that each student had to choose a color scheme.  Choices included monochromatic, complementary, analogous, and triadic.  This added another level to the challenge, but it was important for these students to be introduced to the idea of a color scheme.  I’m really happy with the way these turned out, and everyone should be really proud of these finished products, and all the other great work made this school year!  Below you will see a selection of student work from Room 16 and Room 15.
