Art is the way we record our different realities, and different art movements evolved because artists wanted to share different ways of looking or thinking about the world. For Cubists like Picasso and Georges Braque, objects and people are seen from multiple and varying points of view. To achieve this, Cubist art uses objects that are broken up and reassembled in an abstracted form to construct an image from numerous viewpoints.
For this activity, get in the spirit of Cubism and follow in Pablo Picasso's footprints by having your child create her own Cubist montage. All you need are some photographs, a copier, scissors, and glue, and your kid will be well on her way to understanding the vibrant art of Cubism!
