Picasso Art

Our first main Art piece for this term was a self portrait using Pablo Picasso’s techniques.

Pablo Picasso was born in Malaga, Spain in 1881, which is more than 120 years ago. Pablo’s real name is Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Clito Ruiz Picasso. A lot of the names are of saints and relatives.

According to his mother, Pablo’s first words were “piz, piz”, which is short for lapiz – Spanish for ‘pencil’

Some of his paintings are amongst the most expensive in the world.

Picasso used many techniques and also created sculptures as well. One of his styles when painting portraits was the combining profile (side on) and frontal (facing) views.

Here are some examples

Our class have now nearly completed our own self portraits of each other using the technique of side on and frontal views of ourselves. We then used oil pastels to make our art work bright and colourful like Picasso had done in his artwork. We noticed that Picasso liked to use patterns as well so we designed our backgrounds using different patterns and colours.

What did you enjoy the most about creating your portrait?
