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 a 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.
