Picasso Owl Prints

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”

– Pablo Picasso

For this Picasso project we explored printmaking. During his career, Picasso explored many forms of printmaking including: engraving, etching, drypoint, aquatint, and linocut.

We used foam to carve out our own Picasso Owl’s and made our prints on encycolpedia pages. The students then added additional details with oil pastels.

Inspired by Picasso – Line Drawings

“Are we to paint what’s on the face, what’s inside the face, or what’s behind it?”

Pablo Picasso

Our lesson today was inspired by the line drawing by Pablo Picasso of Francoise Gilot, the mother of two of his children. We focussed on the simplicity of line that was used to capture her portrait.

For the background we used acrylic paint and plastic cards to scrape the paint across the paper. The students really enjoyed moving the paint around without a brush. We used plastic page protectors to trace the basic lines of magazine faces.
