Picasso Art for Kids

Pablo Picasso is without doubt one of the most famous artists of the twentieth century and there’s no wonder why!

The brilliant artist, born in Spain in 1881, loved to experiment with different styles, techniques and try new ideas all the time. He wasn’t afraid of change, in fact, he welcomed it and that became part of his signature 'Picasso Style'. 

But, even though he had such extraordinary talent and technical abilities, Picasso's mindset on art and what makes you an artist is fascinating. 

One of my favourite quotes by Picasso is: 

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”

And with that in mind, today we are sharing this wonderful playdough faces activity to encourage creativity in your little ones and let them express the artist they already are!
