Make easy Halloween drawings with this fun Frankenstein meets Picasso project. Art history meets pop culture.
Have your Halloween drawing project do double duty by adding a little lesson in cubism to the mix. The result might be an extra creative-looking portrait of Frankenstein (or Frankenstein’s monster, if you like to be precise).
As a quick refresher, Cubism was an art movement that began in the early 1900s by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. It aimed to show all of the possible viewpoints of a person or an object all at once.
Given that Frankenstein was also pieced together, making a cubist version of his face with a profile and front view, just kind of makes sense. It’s a fun Halloween drawing project that gives a nod to the season, and to art history.
