The Youthhood of Picasso

Picasso manifested exceptional talent in his early years, He painted through his childhood and adolescence. Defining talents within begins with experimenting from the early years and progresses throughout many of our youth-hoods. The desire for a child to learn new techniques and learn colors is phenomenal. Witness as I enjoy at first hand these three little girls love for learning in the art world.

I have been on a two week trip through Boston and New York. While in Boston, on Friday my older niece had doctor appointments. So, I decided to take my other little niece, Ashley to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Intoxicated by the variety of art at the Museum, Ashley's visit to the Museum was quite learning curve. She was so thrilled at every form of art and painting she saw. What intrigued me the most of her visit was when we went into the India Gallery. Beautifully displayed were statues of each of the Hindu Gods. As she saw Shiva she pointed to him and said that is God. I said to her, "Ashley, how do you know this?" She then stated, "Because, Aunt Angel I just know in India this must be how they see God. Everyone does see him in their own way you know." This outing to the museum with Ashley was priceless.

Today is our last day in New York at my sister in laws cousin's house. I thought it would be a great idea to teach my niece Ashley and her cousins new art techniques. Birch trees are always fun and easy. When adding color to them they accentuate the beauty of the species. Together Breanna, Kimberly, Ashley and I created the most colorful forests that were full of bright birch trees.

My hopes for these talented girls are to be exceptionally prolific throughout the course of their lives just like Picasso. With no doubt they are geared in the right direction just as can be seen in their art below.

To all the parents out their who wonder if their child has talents; stop wondering now and feed their desires. A little paint brush and paint goes a long way. Picasso showed a passion and a skill for drawing from an early age. According to his mother, his first words were "piz, piz", a shortening of lápiz, the Spanish word for "pencil". From the age of seven, Picasso received formal artistic training from his father in figure drawing and oil painting. Ruiz was a traditional academic artist and instructor, who believed that proper training required disciplined copying of the masters, and drawing the human body from plaster casts and live models. His son became preoccupied with art to the detriment of his classwork.

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”
