LTC 4240: Art for Children

Lesson Title & Big Idea*: Picasso Self-Portraits

Grade Level*: 2

Lesson Overview/Summary*: I will teach the students about the famous artist Picasso. Students
Class Periods Required:
will understand how the style of Cubism was developed and Picasso's contribution with that. They (please circle)
will learn how he used the style of Cubism in his creations, and then create their own self-portrait
using characteristics of Cubism. Students will become make familiar with the characteristics of
Cubism by playing a dice game practicing drawing cubist facial features. This will help them
brainstorm how they will draw their self-portrait. After the game, students will actually create their
self-portraits using the facial features from the game and decorate it with colors that express
them. When finished, they will write about why they chose certain shapes and colors to represent
themselves. To conclude the lesson, students will share with the class how the shapes and colors
they chose reflect their unique personality.

students to know.*
1. Visual Art: Students will learn and use aspects of cubism in
their creations.
2. Literacy: Students will write how their portrait represents
them in terms of the colors and shapes they used.
