Pablo Picasso Art Detective Weeping Woman Portrait guided clue worksheet & Answers & drawing frame.

Pablo Picasso Art Detective Weeping Woman Portrait guided clue worksheet & Answers & drawing frame.

This is a very useful resource to support learning about the painting Weeping Woman by Pablo Picasso. It encourages pupils to look at the painting for clues and decipher their meanings for themselves. It focuses on the emotions experiences and visually displayed in the painting and so is useful for Emotional Intelligence teaching. There are supplementary resource worksheets in my resources with a question and answer sheet which would be complementary to these worksheets. Can be enlarged to A3. One clue finding sheet with answer sheet for use in classroom discussion support. One drawing frame worksheet. Suitable for late key Stage two and key Stage three as well as some special needs groups. I teach special needs and this works well with my year 10 groups.

Pablo Picasso Porrait Weeping Woman Emotional Intelligence Worksheets

Pablo Picasso Porrait Weeping Woman Emotional Intelligence Worksheets

This is a set of two worksheets based around Emotional Intelligence and the work of Pablo Picasso Weeping Woman. Pupils discover that it is possible to experience more than one emotion at a time and how emotion can overwhelm you, labelling these emotions often helps. Pupils are guided to look at the visual signs in the painting to point towards different emotions that the person is experiencing. This is a great lesson stand alone or sub cover work, it allows for much discussion within groups and as a class but gives a framework for thinking and discovery. Further worksheets can be access through my resources where there are additional worksheets on Weeping Woman including an Art Detective clues sheets where pupils search for the clues in the painting & interpret them. Encouraging the thought that every picture tells a story and to take time to investigate visually. Worksheets well presented and can be enlarged to A3. Suitable for Key Stage 2, 3 & special needs pupils. I am a special needs teacher and use this with my year 10 pupils very successfully.
