In this exercise, one of the famous Cubist portraits painted by Picasso has been made with collage, using different kinds of paper (colored tissue paper, newspaper and magazine fragments). Each student has copied the painting by Picasso in pencil and then has glued the different types of paper on the drawing trying to follow the colors of the original painting. After completing the collage, the students have redrawn the black lines that delimit the various areas of the portrait, imitating the style of Picasso. The interpretation made with collage has enriched the surface of the portrait with various textures and the final result is really effective!
