Today, to begin the activity and gain a better understanding of what they were instructed to create the students learned a great deal about Pablo Picasso and his establishment of Cubism art. Cubism art was explained as a new way to see different objects. The students then used clay to model their own cubism self-portrait. After they finished each of the students proudly showed off their own masterpieces and got to take them home. This activity allowed the students to create a piece of art while also expanding their mind by creatively helping their friends make their own portraits as well.
