All About Cubism

 

In around 1907 two artists living in Paris called Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque developed a revolutionary new style of painting which transformed everyday objects, landscapes, and people into geometric shapes.   Using the information in the links provided (the words in red), create your own piece of art in the Cubism style.

Tangrams

 

Like building blocks, tangrams can teach children about spatial relationships. They may help children  learn geometric terms, and develop stronger problem solving abilities.  Invented in China approximately 200 years ago, a tangram is a two-dimensional re-arrangement puzzle created by cutting a square into seven pieces -- seven geometric shapes called "tans".  Using the link below, what different images can you create using just seven pieces?
