This project was very fun! The idea came from this site. Learners had to bring a can to class. I first taught the learners about cubism and Pablo Picasso. They then began making their artwork.
Learners began by crushing their can! This was a fairly noisy process (especially with the principals office beneath my class). At the end of the period, each can was definitely crushed though! I then explained what a portrait was and linked the drawing of the portrait with the Cubist trait of using geometric shapes and drawing the character from different angles.
They were encouraged to use bright colours and to keep the form away from being realistic.
