Cubist Art (Create It!)
One artist that comes to mind in connection with cubist art is Pablo Picasso. Picasso famously painted in a cubist style from about 1909 to 1912. Readers can try out Picasso’s techniques as well as those of Paul Cezanne, Juan Gris, and others in this introduction to cubism. Biographical information of these master cubists is paired with a colorful layout sure to engage young artists. Step-by-step instructions and tip boxes guide readers through creating several cubist masterpieces based on techniques and the best-known works of these famous cubists.
Colorful books engage the reader as they learn about specific art styles and artists of that era. Paul Klee and others represent the abstract movement. Edward Munch and company are here for the Expressionists. Rene Magritte and others show their Surrealist flair! I liked how the books refer to the more well-known artists and bring in others you may not know. About 10 artists are featured in each book. Try out their techniques with some easy art projects as you meet some of the art world’s rebels.
