Learn as you become an artist or an explorer! Whether they are guides to museums, catalogues for temporary exhibitions, or books on individual artists, 'Happy Museum!' books are great accessories for children, their families and teachers, on trips to a museum, an exhibition, at home or in school. The approach taken is playful and interactive, so that the child can learn while having fun! The books are peppered with games, comments, food for thought, opportunities for creativity and drawing, and concepts from art history. They help children to assimilate ideas which might seem complicated or abstract: techniques or theories such as 'still life', 'watercolour' or 'Impressionism'. Set sail for a voyage around the world! Paul Gauguin drops out and focuses only on his passion, painting! He travels from Brittany to the Marquesas Islands and onto Tahiti . . . He disembarks on brightly coloured islands. Dive into blue lagoons, tropical forests and the legends of the Maori people . . . Go down to the beach and meet the beautiful wahines and the mysterious horseback riders. It's your turn now to create an explorer's diary, just like the artist's. Page after page, discover and colour in Gauguin's life and work. AGES: 4 plus and the whole family (parents, grandparents, teachers) AUTHOR: Catherine de Duve is an art historian and painter who worked at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts of Belgium.
