Art history is an inherent part of learning about arts to kids. It is not only teaching children the techniques that artists use, but also telling them inspiring stories. We recommend reading the short summaries of the stories to your kid in order to test his or her curiosity. When it goes successful, you may draw some of the paintings together. There is the whole iceberg of hidden talents in your child.1. Pablo Picasso for kids – “Dove of Peace”
The story of Picasso is, in fact, a story of a hardworking rebel that believed in his mission. Growing up in an artistic family, he had attended art school in Barcelona and Madrid. Though after some time Picasso realized that classical art is not his niche, he did not want to paint as people used to do for years; he had something new to bring. Therefore, Pablo started experimenting with the styles: cubism, neoclassicism and surrealism are reflected in his works. As a result, the new vision was accepted by a broad audience with joy: fine art, as any other movement, needs development. Picasso is a discoverer and enthusiast that engendered a large part of a base for modern art.
On the picture below, we can see a white pigeon that has become the symbol of peace; Picasso has drawn “Dove of Peace” in 1949, after the numerous wars he lived through.
