I used this same method when I did Picasso self portraits with my first
graders. We looked at some of his portraits and talked about Cubism. We
drew our eyes, nose and mouth in angular, "weird" shapes. Then we drew two
lines that went through the face from one edge of the paper to the other.
We traced these lines with the black glue and then used watercolors when
they dried. They turned out wonderful and the kids loved them!
