We have a really great book of art projects based on the great artists, which is where I got this idea for single-color painting like Picasso did like. It just so happens that Love Bug’s favorite color is pink and Sweet Pea’s favorite is blue, so that tied in perfectly with Picasso’s Rose Period and Blue Period!
I gave each of them several shades of paint (four pinks for Love Bug and three shades of blue for Sweet Pea), and let them paint. Love Bug decided to paint a whole pink scene with a pink sun, clouds, and buildings. Sweet Pea just painted blue.
