Cubism means to look at something from more than one point of view. A fun Picasso art for kids project is drawing a face that shows both front and profile.
Follow the simple steps in this cubism tutorial to mix two points of view, and make a striking portrait. Keep the shapes simple, trace them well to make bold lines, and then fill with your favorite colors.

- Draw the face in pencil on black construction paper.
- Trace all the lines with a black pastel. I recommend tracing twice to get a thick black line.
- Fill in all areas with oil pastels. Color it well to cover up all the black paper.
- If any of the black line is covered, trace it again to make it really thick.
