Cubist Portraits

- Tempera Paint
- Paintbrushes
- Pencils
- Student Photographs
- Sharpie Markers
- Picasso References

Key Ideas:
- Cubism
- Pablo Picasso's Blue and Rose Period
- Monochromatic

Review Key Ideas. Students outline major lines of their face on a print out of their photograph. Trace onto "good paper." Break up into spaces. 
Choose one color and add tints and shades, painting each section one color.
Outline shapes with sharpie marker.
My students were a little hesitant making "cubist" and abstract shapes because they felt that it did not look like them. Overall though, I think they were pretty successful.
