Re: Surrealism and Cubism for Fifth Graders


Date: Fri May 09 2003 - 17:13:27 PDT

I did a cubism project with fourth grade.
Started with realistic portraits in pencil. Laid tracing paper over the
drawing and redrew using straight lines. Students could move features around
using the tracing paper. Put pencil on the back of the tracing paper and
transfered to cardboard. Traced over the lines with glue to create a printing
plate. Printed 3 prints in any color. One was colored with oil pastels using
any colors. Then the students did a non- objective by using the tracing
paper to trace the shapes from their abstract/cubist portrait onto colored
construction paper. These were cut out and glued randomly on another sheet.
Lines were added with gel colored pencils. All three turned out great! Janet
