Bad student, good painter – Pablo Picasso

Teachers of the famous Spanish painter Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) were probably surprised by his great international success in art.

Pablo left school when he was ten because he couldn’t learn to read and write fluently. He had difficulties expressing himself and he also confused letter.

According to Pablo's mother, the famous painter learned to draw before he even learned to speak. One of the first words he uttered was "piz". In fact, little Pablo was asking of his mother “lapiz", which is a Spanish word for - a pencil.

He wanted to draw.
