Art and Design

LO: To develop a range of techniques such as collage

Looking back at your self-portrait from last week, talk to an adult about the details missed on your pictures (e.g. eyebrows, eyelashes). 


Look at the pictures that Picasso drew. Think about cubism (different features in different places) and think about how Picasso used this in his work.


Next, draw a simple face shape and colour it in. Add hair, but don't add any other features.

Using your portraits from last week, cut out key features (eyes, nose, mouth) and stick them onto the face you have drawn today in different places to create a portrait in the style of Picasso.

Look at the Picasso pictures to help you here. 


Evaluate your work by talking to your grown up about the key questions below:

  • What do you like about your work?
  • Why did you decide to stick the features in certain places?
  • Would you do it differently next time?
