Throughout his life Picasso created wondrous works that were recognized all over the world. Previous to his enormous success Picasso was an ordinary child like most. Overall Picasso was a poor student, but he had undeniable desire to draw, and as time went on, an undeniable talent.

As a result of his undeniable talents his lack of interest in academics increased. Later on his family moved to Spain where Picasso enrolled in a prestigious fine arts school, and his admission was certain. This was quite an accomplishment considering he was not of age to be accepted.

Nonetheless he was, but his interest in the school also diminished because of the many rules that came along with attending.
