Boring adults will tell you that art is TERRIBLY serious. That’s NONSENSE!
I’m Leo, your art gallery guide.
I know for a fact that art is WACKY, EXPLOSIVE, RUDE and EXTREMELY NAUGHTY.
So if you want to HAVE FUN with art let me show you how to be an Art Rebel.
In art, there are NO RIGHT ANSWERS. You just need to make up your OWN mind – and always have FUN
This irreverent introduction to art gives children the confidence to respond to art on their own terms, and – most importantly – to have fun with it.
Under the playful guidance of Leo, the museum cat, children encounter abstract, Surrealist, nude and contemporary art, ancient sculpture, still lifes and portraits. But instead of being told facts to memorize, they’re equipped with the knowledge that allows them to come up with their own interpretations of famous art works. Knowing how symbols work, they’ll decipher clues in Frida Kahlo’s self-portrait; understanding Surrealism, they’ll decide for themselves what Joan Miró’s abstract doodles are all about.
This book shows that art isn’t about knowing the right answers – it’s about having fun, making up your own mind and seeing things from a different angle.
