Here's project one of three. Thanks to Pinterest, I found this great idea for Recycled Picasso Portraits by United Art & Education. Just click the previous link and they have a wonderful tutorial to follow.
Using "trash" like cardboard boxes, phone book pages, paper and fabric scraps, old magazines, discarded buttons, and paper bags, along with some basic art supplies like glue, scissors, construction paper and oil pastels, students created these amazing portraits.
I can't tell you how much they enjoyed coloring on the cardboard with the oil pastels! If you ever want to entertain a child, give them something textured to color on :)

Love these Crayola Oil Pastels for classes!
I also encouraged them to use a warm/cool color combo for the back ground verses the foreground.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! To see more craft and art ideas for kids, visit my art lesson blog at www.sleepyheaddesignsstudio.blogspot.com!
