The fabulous fifth graders studied the history of Cubism and then looked at contemporary artist author, George Rodrigue. You might recognize him from his Blue Dog series. The fifth graders choose a pet (or animal) and drew it from observation. Next, they had to figure our how to turn it into the Cubist style. I enjoy seeing the different methods the students took. For color, they had to use at least two different color schemes, but many chose to use more in other areas as well. Amazing outcomes, students!
