|Pablo Picasso, Self Portrait (1907)|
|Pablo Picasso, Portrait of Dora Maar (1937)|
Students learned about Cubism, an art movement developed by Picasso and Georges Braque. In Cubism, artists looked at the world in different ways. They would break up the subject into many different shapes and look at it from different angles.
Students then began their own Cubism inspired self portraits, which started off similarly to our self portraits from observation, with a head, neck and shoulders. However, students could take more liberty with their shapes and colors. Using oil pastels, students colored in their hair and top, but left their faces blank.
