An inspiration to anyone who’s ever felt judged!”One day the world is a peaceful, lovely landscape painting… The next day – BLAM! – Pablo bursts through the canvas, paintbrush in hand, ready to paint something fresh and new. Pablo Picasso may have been one of the most famous artists of the 20th century, but that doesn’t mean he painted what people wanted him to paint! In fact, some people hated his paintings, and called them “ugly!” and “terrible!”—something many kids can relate to. But Picasso didn’t listen to all those people, and kept on working the way he wanted to work, until he created something so new, so different… that people didn’t know what to say!

For every young artist who’s drawn something other kids think is “ugly,” this story of rebellion and creativity is sure to inspire.
