A Cubist 3D painting of a chicken is made using just an egg tray, paint and brush. An outline image is painted onto the tray using bold colours before adding detail. The finished piece can be viewed from different angles to achieve different effects on the viewer. This simple technique can be adapted to suit any subject, topic or image. There is animated reference to the Cubist movement and to Cubist artist Pablo Picasso, as well as some of his works, to set this in context and add an element of art history.
Pupils could make smaller versions using patterns only on six egg box sized pieces. Piece together to make a 3D class mosaic. Children could practise colour mixing using this method and display resulting pieces together for greater effect.
