Learning Challenge

Picasso or Dali? You decide!


This term our Learning Challenge will focus on two famous Spanish artists; Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali.


Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso is one of the most famous artists of the twentieth-century.

Why? Because he was brilliant at drawing. People really loved his doodles.

Even as a child he was better at drawing than many adults. He could draw and paint just about anything, and in any style. He liked to experiment and try out new ideas, which is important if you are an artist, because the world is always changing. Picasso helped us see the world in new ways

 Salvador Dali

Salvador Dalí made paintings, sculptures and films about the dreams he had. He painted melting clocks and floating eyes, clouds that look like faces and rocks that look like bodies.

Think about what your paintings would look like if you painted your dreams. 

Dalí was involved with surrealism. This was an art movement where painters made dream-like scenes and showed situations that would be bizarre or impossible in real life.


Look at this painting above – does the lake look like a fish to you?

What else can you see in the painting?
