Synopsis

Meet the Circus by Edward Cheverton

Published to coincide with a major retrospective of Alexander Calder's work, Meet Alexander Calder is a fun-filled introduction to the work of one of the twentieth century's most important modern artists. Edward Cheverton takes readers beyond the page and introduces them to ways of creating art that takes up space and moves round and about. Taking inspiration from Alexander Calder's toys and mobiles, Cheverton invites readers to reinvent simple forms and experiment with combinations of found objects to create their own new pieces of sculpture. Children will enjoy discovering that art is not only something to observe but something to play and interact with, and to have fun making.
