Cubism and Realism Combined

Year 6 have been exploring Cubist and Realist art work over this half term and have studied the work of Pablo Picasso. They have thought about how out of proportion and distorted features are used in Cubist portraits and how this contrasts to the life-like features that are carefully created in a realist picture. The children worked particularly hard to develop eyes and mouths with shading and line strokes to make them seem real. At the end of the block of work, they created their own pictures where they combined these skills and used a collage effect in their work.
