Picasso’s Birthday

Classroom Ideas:

Picasso Inspired Display Area

If you’re looking for some inspiration to help make learning more fun and engaging for kids in their own time, why not try and a splash of creativity to a spare section of the classroom and make a dedicated display area where the children can pin up their favourite pieces of work all to do with the topic of Picasso.

Lesson Ideas:

YouTube- How to draw a Picasso Portrait

This YouTube tutorial is short and sweet and is perfect for anyone who is looking to try and create their own Picasso inspired portrait

Picasso Self Portrait

Below is just a tiny selection of KS1 and KS2 children who have had a go at making their own Picasso inspired self portrait

YouTube- Picasso makes a masterpiece

This YouTube video is a small excerpt from a larger documentary which is called ‘Le Mystère Picasso‘. This video is a great way to show off the creative process that many artists follow when drawing or painting, especially that of Picasso.

BBC Bitesize- Pablo Picasso

A dramatised autobiography of the artist Pablo Picasso, showing his paintings and sketches and talking about the inspiration for his work. Picasso talks about his family and his sister Lola, who was a huge inspiration for his work. He talks about how he used colours to show emotions.


To celebrate Picasso’ birthday, we have been hard at work to bring you some fresh resources all around the topic of Picasso and his life

Take a look below at some of what we have to offer
