This week we have been looking at interesting artists. We loved looking at Pablo Picasso’s different art work.
We learnt that Pablo Picasso grew up in Spain where he was born on October 25, 1881. His father was a painter and art teacher. Pablo liked to draw from an early age. Legend has it that his first word was “piz”, short for “pencil” in Spanish. It soon became apparent that Pablo had little interest in school, but was an extremely talented artist.
When he was fourteen Pablo attended a famous art school in Barcelona. A few years later he went to another school in Madrid. However, Pablo was bored with the classic teachings of art school. He didn’t want to paint like people hundreds of years ago. He wanted to create something new.
We studied the different ways Picasso created art and used his techniques to make our own Picasso inspired art! Can you draw like Picasso?
