Sand Art

Let's see if you love this video. You can practice it on the beach, but, if you cannot wait for that, use a table and flour, although I'm afraid it will not be the same.
If you want more information about this Israeli artist, Ilana Yahav, take a look to her work, you can visit her website here.

Did you enjoy? Let´s see another one:


Now, it´s your turn.

Be a sand artist
I know that it is not the same, but there is an online software to create your own sand picture. Its name is  thisissand. Use the mouse to start and the sand begins to fall. To change the colour use the letter "C" in your keyboard, to erase what you have done use the letter "E", and with the arrows you will use the different colours you have selected before. Try, its funny!

More about Picasso.




You are going to learn how to create a portrait in Picasso´s double face style. Follow the instructions and... I'm not going to stop the video, so...
LET'S DO IT!



Part 2
More ideas: Clay Picasso faces

  • Picasso Memory. Based on Picasso's masterpieces at "Museo Picasso de Barcelona".
  • Picasso puzzle. "Las Meninas de Picasso". Jigsaw puzzle.
  • Picassohead. Be a digital Picasso. After getting to know the tool, you will have to draw a portrait similar to that one you have handmade previously following the video instructions. You Placan do it in black line or in colours, it's your choice. When finished, sign it and save it on to the gallery using a name beginning with SARAMAGO, your course and group and your name and the first letter of your surname. For example: SARAMAGO1DRosaF. That will be the way I will find your tasks. Of course, you can also use my email.
