About Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)

Pablo Picasso was a Spanish painter, sculptor, and printmaker. Born in 1881, he is widely considered to be one of the most influential artists of the 20th century and one of the greatest artists of all time. Picasso's works are characterized by their innovative techniques and wide range of styles, including his groundbreaking contributions to the Cubist movement. He was known for his experimentation with form, color, and subject matter, and his works often convey a sense of energy, playfulness, and emotional intensity.

Over time, Picasso's style evolved from representational images to more abstract and innovative works, and he became a leading figure in the modern art movement. Today, Picasso's works continue to be celebrated for their beauty and significance, and his paintings can be found in major museums around the world. He remains one of the most famous and beloved artists of all time.

I appreciate the program package that you offer. It has been helpful for us in our school to provide such a broad exposure to artists and genres. I’ve experienced many different methods of art instruction in various schools I’ve served. I’ve just completed my first year at my school as principal and this has been very valuable program for us.
