Draw a "Cubist-style" Dog!
Pablo Picasso and Georges Braques invented "Cubism" in the early 20th Century. The idea was that they painted their subjects from all different directions, so that you might see the profile of a face and two eyes starting out at you in the same painting.

In this exercise we will make some crazy-looking dogs inspired by Cubism!
