|In the spirit of Picasso—by Riley Caldwell, Age 3.|
The "gallery" was set up in the school's classroom. Artwork by famous creators was displayed alongside brief biographies and explanations of the assignments and classwork given to the students. With Pablo Picasso, kids were told about his life, then shown work by the artist. Children were then encouraged to think about their profiles. "When the older children looked at their profiles, we talked about the curve of the nose and that they could see only one eye. They then drew the line of their profile in the middle of the paper and chose two colors to paint each side of the face." Students were encouraged to glue eyes and mouths anywhere they would like on the paper.
