ASSIGNMENT: 

1. We are going to do a portrait of an adult (can be a parent, a teacher or anyone you like) in the style of Italian artist Amadeo Modigliani. If you would like to know more about this artist before we go further, click HERE. And here is a screenshot when I "googled" Modigliani portraits:

2. Next: Draw your portrait using these steps:

a. Draw a "U" shape for the face.
b. Draw hair and ears.
c. Draw the neck (two lines).
d. Draw the collar and shirt (have lines go off the bottom of the page).
e. Draw almond-shaped eyes, an "L" nose, and a mouth.
f. Add lines in the background to carve up the space.

3. Color the shapes of each box using a different color for each: red, blue, yellow.

4. Using your paintbrush dipped in water, "paint out" the pigment from the marker and fill in the box. Do all the boxes in the background; let dry.

5. Now outline the person using a black or dark blue marker. Use your water to fill in areas such as the hair, the eyes and the shirt. You're done!

ASSIGNMENT: 

Today you will create some dogs... "Cubist" style!

Have fun with your drawing, remembering that each and every Picasso Dog will turn out differently, and some might be completely abstract, some dog-like, some a bit strange, and some super sweet. But they will ALL be wonderful and I look forward to seeing how many DIFFERENT dogs we can make using the same set of instructions:

1. Draw an eye. 

2. Turn paper 90 degrees; draw a second, larger eye.

3. Turn paper 90 degrees; draw a nose or snout.

4. Turn paper 90 degrees; draw an ear.

5. Turn paper 90 degrees; draw a tongue.

6. Turn paper 90 degrees; draw a paw or foot.

7. Connect the elements to create your new dog breed!

Then, have fun painting using the secondary colors: Orange, Green & Purple!
