Sandra Silberzweig Inspired Portraits

My group of 3rd grade Mini Masters looked at the Cubist portrait work of Picasso and contemporary artist Sandra Silberzweig. This is the third time I've done an art lesson based on the work of Silberzweig. The children are always enthusiastic to get creating and really respond to her dynamic, vibrant work. These were created with minimal palettes of acrylics and children were encouraged to create a variety of colors, shades and tints. I was pleased with the diverse works from this lesson. Thanks to Ms. Silberzweig for inspiring a new group of young students!

  1. These portraits are so colorful and interesting! Did you instruct/demonstrate how to draw a cubist style face?


I appreciate your comments and feedback!
