Picture Study Picasso

Studying Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Clito Ruiz Picasso  aka Picasso has been quite enjoyable. 

His growing up years  and art education were lead by his father, an artist himself.  
His art work is remembered through his different periods.

Another website I've recently discovered that explores many of Picasso's works, articles pertaining to Picasso and his works, as well as actual Picasso works currently on auction can be found at Artsy Net It's a pretty neat resource that is suitable for elementary through high school students.

After studying some of his different periods and styles, I-E and     E-R decided to try their hands at Cubism.   After reading that cubism was Picasso’s attempt at showing an object from several different vintage points, they drew the same object from different viewpoints.
