In 4th and 5th grades, students studied Cubism, looking at the works of Georges Baraque, Paul Cezanne and Pablo Picasso. Cubism was an early 20th-century style art movement, in which multiple perspectives are shown at once and objects are broken up and reassembled in a recognizable but abstracted collage of simple geometric shapes, creating a limited sense of depth. In the past, we’ve studied Cubism as part of a painting unit. This year I thought we’d try something different, and made our Cubist style portraits out of clay. They came out great!
