Creating Cubist Art Like Picasso Lesson Plan


Learn about one of the most famous artists of all time and create a work of Cubist art


In this art lesson, students learn about the famous Modern artist, Pablo Picasso, and one of the movements he started: Cubism. Then students complete a cubist piece of art like Picasso.

This 11-page lesson plan includes the following:

  • A condensed background on the artist and his different artistic styles
  • Links to 11 of Picasso’s most important works of art
  • A carefully crafted sentence about Picasso (ideal for memorization)
  • 2 photos of Picasso
  • An overview of the “Cubism” movement
  • Vocabulary words and definitions
  • Clear and concise instructions for the art project
  • Materials list for the colored pencil project
  • Suggestions for scaling the project to different skill levels
  • Encore ideas for extending the project and learning through repetition

*Most of my lesson plans include printable images of the artist’s work within the lesson plan. However, since Pablo Picasso’s artwork is still under copyright, I can not include them in this product. You can easily follow the links provided in the lesson where you will find printable images of each work of art the lesson mentions.

I designed this lesson plan for use in our Classical Conversations community (Cycle 3, Week 14 for Fine Arts), but you could easily use it in a variety of situations. Looking for more help? We have a full page of free and paid helps for Cycle 3!
