Picasso’s style is not sweet and gentle in nature, therefore when children first encounter this style of paintings they tend to reject; however, when it comes to the Masters of Art that leave the deepest impressions, Picasso is the first one on the list, perhaps that is the charm of art. Children need more than one type of aesthetic appreciation, but also to broaden they minds to a diversified appreciation of art.
