The key facts we focused on for Pablo Picasso was the fact that he painted blue paintings when he was sad. He painted rose colored paintings when he became happy again. And, he was inspired by African masks when he started painting masklike faces. We used 4 different values of blue for this project to remind us of Picasso's blue period. We also created faces that look sort of like masks, in the style of Picasso. Great job 1st grade!
Learning Goal: I can...
- Tell about Pablo Picasso
- Create a collage
- Explain what value is (the lightness or darkness of a color)
- Create texture in paint (by scratching into the wet paint)
- Use contrasting values to help facial features show up
