Roll a ....

I've found this resource in internet:

The product description says:
        "This game is played individually with a dice. The students roll the dice and draw the appropriate part to create portraits in the style of Pablo Picasso. After rolling the dice 4 times your students will have completed a portrait in the style of a Master Artist. After completing one, the students can start the game over.
        The possibilities are endless with this fun resource. The students will love playing the game in your class and it submerges them into the style of Picasso. I use this game in my elementary art classroom and the students love it! They even ask to play it when they are finished with other assignments. My students were experts on Picasso's style after playing. Don't miss this opportunity to engage your students in a whole new way!"

And, there are more versions of this Art Game: check this Pinterest.

 Have Fun!!!

Symmetry and printing.

Today we are going to work with symmetry and temperas. 

The material we will need is:
  • Temperas
  • Paper
  • Brushes
Important: You can only paint on one side of the paper. If the tempera got dry, paint again on the same spot, never on the stamped one. The interesting effect is to see the difference between one side and the other.

1. You will fold your paper in half, and then draw just the half of an image on it. Before the tempera dries you will fold the paper and press, so the tempera will transfer to the other half of the paper and make a whole image!!!
