My Favorite Picasso Quote! Door Decor!

I doodled this awhile ago in my sketchbook and this summer I thought HEY this would be awesome DOOR DECOR!  So I painted it on butcher paper and Wah-LA!

“Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.”
-Pablo Picasso

Dali's Dreamy Birdies

We studied Dali and his The Elephants painting.  We made our birds and similar to Dali.  Long skinny legs and warm colors for the background.  We also added a cool color bird to make it POP!  I saw this lesson online and fell in love with it!  It is a two day lesson that keeps the students engaged the entire time!
