More Picasso - "fractured vases" by 2nd grade
Another quick fun Picasso lesson! Someone gave me a bunch of clear acetate, and I used it for this lesson. On white paper, students sketched a vase (some added a flower too), and traced over it thickly with a black marker. Then they used a ruler to divide up the space, also with heavy black lines.
We taped a piece of acetate on top of the marker drawing, and colored on the acetate with oil pastels, leaving the black lines of the drawing showing.
Last step was to remove the original marker drawing, and flip the oil pastel picture onto a sheet of black construction paper.
I used colored duct tape to attach the acetate to the construction paper. I tried to photograph them to show you, but had trouble with the gloss of the acetate. So I ran a few through the scanner instead. The colorful borders didn't quite fit in the scanner.
Here's a few more~
