The March 2017 Smart Art explored Pablo Picasso’s Blue Period. The instruction booklet gives a bit of background on the project and also Project Pointers – these are key!

Smart Art always includes clear step-by-step instructions. You can choose to follow along exactly or branch out on your own if you are comfortable.

The Project
I ended up just playing around with the materials and didn’t actually finish a project.  These were all new materials to me and I for sure needed practice with them.  I like that Smart Art lets you explore so many different mediums and I am always impressed with the high quality of the materials they send!
