My third grade students studied Pablo Picasso. We looked at Picasso's collages and cubist paintings. We combined collage and cubsim. We also studied his "Night Fishing in at Antibes" painting. You can find this painting at the High Museum downtown as we speak. I saw it and it is amazing! They had to create an abstract background with neutral colors and a cubist self-portait. They also had to show themselves participating in an activity they enjoy doing outside of school. Move over Picasso!
