Pablo Picasso had many different art styles during his career. Art historians have given names to these periods of art in his life. Fourth grade has been studying Picasso's Blue Period and Rose Period. The Rose Period was after Mr. Picasso's Blue Period. During his Blue Period he was depressed, poor and unsettled. Then, as he became successful his attitude became more positive and he began using brighter colors and depicting happier images. And, he fell in love! As you can see from the hearts, this lesson is inspired by Mr. Picasso's Rose Period. Students were given red, magenta, white and black paint and asked to create a large heart painted in tints and shades of red. I believe this hearts would cheer anyone's day!
