Fluorescent Picasso Portraits

    My second graders just finished learning about Matisse, so Picasso worked perfectly as the next lesson.  We started by reading/watching the book When Pigasso met Mootisse. I used the video on Storyline Online (  http://www.storylineonline.net/).  The kids seemed to really enjoy this story.
   Next, we looked at some Picasso paintings and began our silly faces.  Once the faces were drawn, we used oil pastels, including fluorescent (a tip from a fellow teacher), a colored the whole picture.  Lastly, the kids outlined their features with black oil pastel.
