Create a Picasso head
Create a cubist portrait (or self portrait)
What You Do:
- Before you begin, take a look at Cubist paintings online or in the library and notice the way the features in the paintings are formed from a mixture of various angles. Some famous Cubist artists to reference might be Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Paul Cezanne, and Juan Gris.
- Gather a variety of photographs from various sources. For this project, you will need to have photos of facial profiles, three-quarter views, and front views.
- Make several copies of each view.
- Use the scissors to cut out parts of the images such as their lips, eyes, noses, chins, and necks.
- Lay out your portrait. Draw an outline for the face, and arrange your cut-out features from different viewpoints within it. Cubist art is a little like putting an Egyptian frieze and a Renaissance portrait into a blender, so be sure to mix styles as well as points of view in your montage.
- When the features have been laid out, glue the pieces onto the paper background.
- Color or paint the features and pieces. You may want to look at the color schemes of various Cubist works to get a feel for how you want to shade your work.
