this Picasso book. (We'll talk about Matisse in week 4). The first book is just a fictional book based on the friendship of the two artists and the second is a great resource for kids with lots of pictures of Picasso's art. It talks about his life and the periods of his art in a way that draws the kids in and gets them enjoying art.
After reading about Picasso and studying his art work, Weston was so excited to go search for his work when we visited the National Art Gallery in Washington D.C. He was able to tell me a specific painting was painted during Picasso's Blue Period and then he was pointing out Cubism left and right. There was a proud mom moment where I saw him really enjoy art! I think it's also proof that spending a little bit of time each week studying artists and their art work is so important!
But, let's get back to the project of the week. This week, we are talking about Picasso's style Cubism. This project was so fun and fairly easy that we really enjoyed relaxing while painting (even though we should have been packing up our stuff!).
Here are a few other books about Picasso:
Picasso and the Girl with the Pony Tail, by Laurence Anholt
100 Pablo Picassos, by Violet Lemay
Who was Pablo Picasso, by True Kelly
