CURRICULUM UPDATE:

          We have had a very artistic week in 133!  On Friday we learned about Pablo Picasso.  Picasso was an accomplished artist who lived from 1881-1973.  He was well versed in many mediums but he is most famous for his abstract paintings of faces.  We showed the children a picture of Picasso and several of his most famous works.  The children thought that Picasso was silly when he put eyes, mouths and noses in different places on the face.  The teachers explained that art does not have to look a certain way, art is how you interpret the world around you and how you want to show it.  Picasso thought that people would think about his art more if it was not perfect. 

          For art, we created our own Picasso artwork.  The children tool eyes, noses and mouths cut out from magazines and placed them where ever they wanted on a face.  They then used yarn to make hair for their Picasso person and colored the areas in with oil pastels. 

          Next week, we will continue looking at different mediums of art and the artists who created them.  We will be culminating our Art project with Studio Day! 

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
