ALEXANDER CALDER: MEET THE ARTIST!

Read, play, experiment, investigate, and discover the art of America's beloved sculptor Alexander Calder!

No artist can put a smile on young faces more quickly than Alexander Calder. A sense of playfulness animates his work - from his signature hanging mobiles to his inventive toys, drawings, and jewelry.

This book is an exciting hands-on introduction to the artist's whimsical world, includes imaginative pop-ups, pull tabs, life-up flaps, and cutouts. Artistic possibilities open up as you explore Calder's creative evolution, play with his toy designs, and even construct your own sculptural Circus!

Ideal for ages 7-12.
