What Kids Discover From The Masters

What Kids Discover From The Art Masters

There are many different approaches to art, but some artists are more successful than others. Why do some young artists follow trends while others follow in the footsteps of famous artists? The answer is simple: it depends on what the artist wants to achieve. Some artists want instantly recognizable pieces, while others want to push boundaries. What kids discover from the art masters is their "out of the box" approach and their love of the arts. Much of their art dates from generations and centuries ago.

Picasso, a notable artist, said the following:

  • "Anything you can imagine is real."
  • "Every child is an artist. Art is a lie that allows us to realize the truth."
  • "Art washes away the dust of everyday life from the soul."
  • “Others have seen what it is and wondered why."
  • "Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist."

Listening to quotes from Picasso and other artists can encourage a student in the creative process. Applying this to learning experiences is the beginning of originality and might make a future master! Art is a fun activity for any age, and if you explore art in school, you may be inspired to start drawing.

The Different Styles of the Great Artist

What makes a great artist? Is it their talent and creativity? Or something that can be taught in a classroom environment? There are many unique approaches to make a great artist. Some focus on realism, others on abstraction. Others are more interested in the form and composition of their work. Finally, there are those that place the importance on the meaning and message they are trying to convey. 

No matter which form an artist chooses, all follow some basic principles. By understanding these principles, anyone can learn to make great pieces of art. 

  • Realism aims to depict people and objects accurately and realistically.
  • Abstract focuses on the shapes and colors of objects, not on their actual appearance.
  • Impressionism aims to capture the feel or atmosphere of a scene rather than replicate it.

Picasso was a pioneer of Cubism, which revolutionized the way artists depicted objects and spaces. Picasso was a prolific artist, with a body of work of more than 20,000 pieces of art in his lifetime. He was also a skilled carver and potter. Picasso's art was so influential that many of the major artists of the 20th century count him as a major influence.

In October 1901, Picasso moved from Barcelona to Paris. It was there, in the heart of the Parisian art world, that Picasso began experimenting with a new form known as Cubism. Cubism was very different from the traditional style of painting that was popular at the time.

It was unlike anything seen before, and they quickly became one of the most celebrated artists in the world.
