Picasso. An Animated Coloring Adventure
In this wholly original coloring book, children’s artwork can be turned into entertaining videos to play on a tablet or smartphone. Each page of this book features an aspect of Picasso’s art and life: from his studio—complete with rocking chair, paintbrushes, and dog—to the works themselves, including paintings, sculptures, and sketches. As the pages are colored, they can be photographed with a smartphone or tablet and, with the use of a free app, turned into an animated video, complete with movement, narration, and music. Containing sixteen pages that can be turned into eight twentysecond videos, this book teaches children about Picasso’s life and art through the work they create as well as the brief text introductions to each section. A satisfying blend of art and technology, this unique coloring book will help kids feel the joy of creativity, explore new technology, and let their imagination soar.
