picasso abstract drawing contest

Picasso is an artist who innovated the realm of art by introducing an abstract style and large fields of color and turning them into symbolic expressions. In his work, he shifted the focus to the general aura of a painting rather than what was physically represented on the canvas. 

As a tribute to the lasting influence that this great creative mind has had on art and, more generally, society, we invite you, our PicsArtists, to take a cue from Picasso when creating your entries for this week’s Drawing Project. You can draw any subject you like, but use Picasso’s signature style to make your creation stand out! Check out our step-by-step tutorial if you need some tips on how to draw like Picasso and submit your creations with the hashtag #wdpPicasso!
