4/5th Cubist Style Slab Portraits

Written by Tiffany Emerick. Posted in 4th Grade Art, 5th Grade Art, ES Art

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!
