Synopsis

Paul Klee My Art Activity Book by Anja Edelmann

Swiss artist Paul Klee especially liked the style and characters he saw in children's paintings. He once said he borrowed ideas for his own work from the way children used shapes, lines and colours to conjure up a new world on a sheet of paper. This fun and imaginative activity book borrows Klee's ideas back, encouraging children to use their artistic instinct and get creative. Some of the drawings invite new characters, and introduce Klee's own ones - the tightrope walker! the angry leopard! - as well as inspiring other ideas like tracing and cutting out, playing with and expanding Klee's own artworks. Sparking endless possibilities, this activity book is an ideal and immersive introduction to an accessible modern artist.
