We started off by looking at some of Pablo PicassoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Cubist period and howÃ‚Â the profile and frontal views of a face merged to form a typical Ã¢â‚¬Å“PicassoÃ¢â‚¬Â portrait and how he used the same technique in his painting of La Coq 1938 (The Rooster). We talked about the placement of the roosterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s eyes and how Picasso broke up the body into angular sections.
Our students got busy. First they used a colored chalk pastel to draw the rooster with some guidance and they started to color in with chalk pastels. They will complete the drawing with some oil pastels to create a pattern onto the colored areas and an outline of the rooster to create an interesting pop to this art piece.
