“Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.”
Spanish artist, Pablo Picasso was a prolific draftsman, sculptor, and printmaker, and he revolutionized the 20th century with his extraordinary art.
Today, I’d like to introduce 21st century budding artists—nine-year-old, Grace and eight-year-old, Gannon.
Grace and Gannon said, “We are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited to be the featured artist’s on your blog.”
This sister and brother act, with help from Mom Molly, submitted Picasso self-portraits.
I hope you’re clapping. I know I am. Yay!
Wait! There’s more.
Do you want to create your own self-portrait?
First, you’ll need construction paper, crayons, and a Sharpie marker. Then, if you follow Grace and Gannon’s instructions below, you’ll be a budding Picasso too!
Take it away kids:
1. Draw a BIG “U”.
2. You draw a line through it, but you have to a draw a nose shape in the line.
3. Draw eyes.
4. Connect the top points of the U to make whatever kind of hair that you want.
5. Put a design on each side.
6. Draw a mouth.
7. Draw a neck and shoulders.
8. Color the background.
9. Add jewelry and other preferable’s.
10. Sign your artist name.
By the way, Grace and Gannon’s grandmother is Marylin Warner who blogs over at Things I Want To Tell My Mother.
