How to Draw a Rooster in the Style of Picasso




Do you want your students to make eye-catching roosters without having all the roosters look the same?  Your students will be captivated by the wide variety of rooster designs possible with these drawing pages.   

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) is widely known for co-founding the Cubist movement.  In this packet, students can roll the dice to create a cubist rooster drawing.  I’ve also made a choice drawing sheet where they can just pick the different body parts without rolling the dice.  You’ll also find rooster pattern ideas and sample roosters for inspiration. 

In addition to that, you’ll get 3 different rooster coloring pages.  I noticed that Picasso did several paintings of unfortunate roosters getting prepared for dinner.  I decided to bring them back to life in these coloring sheets.  So using inspiration from Picasso’s dead roosters, I imagined what they might look like if they were living for one-of-a-kind coloring pages.  

I also made a coloring sheet of Pablo Picasso.  Two versions have areas to add colors or patterns, and the other version has my patterns added to it.  If you look closely, you’ll see that Picasso’s art also inspired some of the patterns.
