Here is an example of some "mosaic" projects from a couple of weeks ago with the 2nd-4th graders. You may have already seen these in previous posts, or you may not. Right now the first Watercolor Discovery is in completion, and those are some awesome masterpieces that I cannot wait to share!And even though these next ones are older examples from last year, they are too impressive not to share. Last year, I incorporated a collage/cubism project from 2nd-8th grades (with modifications with lower grades) that educated them about Pablo Picasso, a little about his life, and how he came to paint in the style that he did. I showed the students this painting of him called "The Three Musicians"that he completed in 1921. We talked a lot about the source of the work, his imsporation and then of course the style.
Then the students were given a project. Grades 6th, 7th and 8th completed their own collage of "Three Musicians" and Grades 2nd-5th created a collage with one musicians. I was quite impressed by the results. Sure, that particular school year was a crazy one, but this project is a bright spot from it!
