Students explored the ideas of figures and shapes and how Picasso placed facial features in non-traditional places to show the human form in new ways.

Students began by cutting out the outline of a figure.

Students had to imagine looking at the side view of themselves as they cut out the figure.

This required a lot of concentration as students thought through all of the shapes needed for their portrait.

Students evoked similar ideas of shape and color as they had fun with changing the location of facial features on their portraits.
