Harvesting Dreams Hundertwasser for Kids by Barbara Stieff


Harvesting Dreams Hundertwasser for Kids by Barbara Stieff

'Painting is to dream', said Hundertwasser. 'When the dream is over, I don't remember anything I dreamed about. The painting, however, remains. It is the harvest of my dream'. This statement is at the heart of this engaging introduction to the work of the eccentric artist, humanitarian, environmentalist and architect who dedicated his life to the beautification of the world we live in. Dozens of activities in this book will captivate children of all ages and take them on a journey through a magical world of creativity and self-fulfillment. The projects here help young readers discover nature's gifts, encourage exploration of what lies outside one's doorstep and emphasise the importance of ecological harmony as vital to living a happier life. Children and their parents will return again and again to this colourful and entertaining tribute to an artist whose legacy offers hope and inspiration for all of us.


Hundertwasser for Kids: Harvesting Dreams is a book filled with activities for kids to help them learn more about Hundertwasser and his art, architecture and style.
