Cubist/Expressionist Birds

I wanted to talk to my second graders about abstract art, and the methods artists may choose to use in order to achieve an abstract effect.  We looked at Franz Marc and Picasso and discussed how unreal color and cubism affected the art world.  Each student chose a bird from my box of bird pictures, and they were to abstract it by rearranging the parts, and using unreal color.  Here are a couple fun examples.
