Young artists become filmmakers in this cutting-edge coloring book that brings Picasso’s world to life.
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 uploaded to a smartphone or tablet and, with the use of a free app, turned into a fully-fledged work of animated video, complete with movement, narration, and music. Containing sixteen pages that can be turned into eight twenty-second 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.
Animation: Once each page is colored, it can be uploaded to an app and a series of movies are created based off of the colored pages, allowing children’s art to come to life. There are 8 animations that can be created, each twenty seconds long.
App: The animation app can be downloaded for free.
Artist: Pablo Picasso is a Spanish painter who is known for creating the cubist movement.
