Pablo Picasso


Picasso said that he spent his entire life learning how to draw like a child. The reason he drew like a child was because he wanted to be honest with his art and to him children were the most honest people on the face of the earth.

His first words were "piz, piz", which is short for "lapiz", the Spanish word for pencil.

Who can notice what is the same about all of Picasso's artwork that is in the modern style?Answer:1. They have the same bold, solid colors2. They all have mixed up facial features.3. They are made up of lots of geometric shapes like triangles, ovals, circles and squares. Do you see any?

Picasso's message to kids is this: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.”
