This month the children and I have been working with the Meet the Masters Art Program focusing on Pablo Picasso. Most people of familiar with his Cubist style but did you know he had 3 other styles that he is known for: The Blue period, Rose period and the Classical period. This program gave us a great over view of each of his styles. In addition to this program the children and I read the book Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artist by Mike Venezia.
The art project this month: First the kids colored in a picture using markers
Then we cut the picture into quarters and rearranged the picture on a back paper and glued them down.
The children's completed works
My completed picture;)
Both kids really enjoy the cubist style and wanted to do another picture so this time I turned to the book You Can Paint Like the Masters by Amy Runyen. While this book suggests using paints the kids wanted to use the markers again.
It is a new month go check out these two great Monthly hops and link up
