Today we had a talk from Anthony Penrose. Anthony spoke to us all about his childhood memories of his friend Picasso. He helped the children to understand how Picasso used colours and shapes to depict people. We were surprised by the detail in some of the images of Picasso’s workbooks, showing how carefully he planned out the shapes he used in his sculptures. Inspired by the images of Picasso’s work, Year 2 drew two pictures of themselves. First, the children drew a portrait of themselves as accurately as they could. Then the children drew another portrait in the style of Picasso.
What did you find interesting, Year 2?
