kids club® abstract picasso portrait

Step 1
Draw on the canvas with pencil, dividing the canvas into 5 random segments. Paint each segment using Licorice, Lipstick Red, Cobalt Blue and Green. Paint 2 of the 5 areas in Licorice paint. Let dry. Add a second and third coat for full coverage. Let dry between layers. 
Step 2
Cut a larger shape from adhesive foam for head. Cut a rectangle for the neck. Cut shapes for hair, eyes, ears, nose and mouth. Keep the shapes simple and geometric and stick them onto the face in an abstract fashion. Think of Picasso's style, where things are not always necessarily where they should be. Stick all the pieces onto the canvas. 
Step 3
Draw the eyeballs onto the eyes, using the marker.
