Picasso's "Le Coq" in Oil Pastel Project


Students made these funk-ay roosters inspired by Pablo Picasso's pastel drawing of a rooster, seen below.
I was inspired by the post found HERE on the blog "A Glimmer of Light". 
You can see her students' fantastic work there.

Pablo Picasso, "Le Coq", 1938, pastel

The kids started off by loosely sketching out a stylized rooster using black oil pastel on 
brown construction paper.
Then they colored them in using oil pastels- I encouraged the use of a variety of colors in order to make
 them fantasy-like and imaginative, just like Picasso's rooster!
