Grade Levels: K-3

These classroom activities are designed to complement the Pablo Picasso topic on BrainPOP Jr.

Color Period
Have students create several works of art that explore one color or shades of one color. What mood or feeling does their color communicate? Encourage them to be creative with their artwork. They may also want to explore the color through other art forms, including collage, photography, or sculpture.

Still Life

Remind students that a still-life painting shows an arrangement of objects. Picasso created still-life paintings throughout his career. During his Cubist Period, he re-imagined objects, combined different viewpoints, and experimented with shapes and colors. Have students create their own still-life paintings. Encourage them to experiment, and challenge them to create a piece in the Cubist style.
