Kids can have fun with cubism by drawing and painting brightly coloured portraits. Encourage the use of contrasting colours and lots of geometric shapes to get the cubism effect.
Here are some examples of the Picasso Cubist Portraits created by kids during the holiday program. They are reproduced here with the permission of Hobby Hop In to help you visualize how to create the same kind of art with your kids.
Instructions. Start by drawing the shape for the face and divide it to show a profile. Draw in the features and add free form flowing hair in Picasso's signature style. Finally outline with sharpies and colour in using paint or oil pastels. The results are amazing as you can see.
