Birthday Blues

"Piz, piz" were his very first words.  Picasso was asking for a pencil (lapiz).  From the time he was a baby little Pablo knew he needed to sketch, paint and create.  Today, October 25th, is Picasso's birthday and today second graders in my class celebrated Picasso's "blues".

Day of the Dead blue altar boxes along with sculptures born from  recycled paper items infused an air of creative focus and celebratory buzz.

Giant bulls, guitars, violins, pianos, drums, flutes and prism-faced sculptures now adorn our classroom. The children created an entire orchestra and said they now need a conductor.

The birthday blues never felt so good.
I'd say the kids did a great job filling his birthday shoes.

I imagined Picasso wearing blue suede shoes.

Picasso would have approved.
