About this deal

Y., and his childhood in wartime Germany, this autobiography gives readers a glimpse at what shaped the artist's life, including essays on his work by his editors, a speech for the Library of Congress, and more than sixty full-color illustrations. This project gives the students the opportunity to prepare their own papers, engaging in painting and decorating paper, cutting, gluing and creating an image involving shapes. This is a delightful delicious book - full of coloured illustrations and a wonderful discussion about his life.

With an extensive collection of more than 106,000 rare and unique volumes relating to the history of art, the Jean Outland Chrysler Art Library is one of the most significant art libraries in the South. When he was ready to create a character or a scene, he'd draw it out in simple shapes onto tracing paper and then overlay the tracing paper on just the right piece of tissue paper. In 2009, Putnam/ Philomel published Artist To Artist: 23 Major Illustrators Talk to Children about Their Art, with contributors including Mitsumasa Anno, Quentin Blake, Carle, Tomie dePaola, Leo Lionni, Barry Moser, Robert Sabuda, Maurice Sendak and Rosemary Wells. From Carle’s own words and pictures, and from the remembrances and essays of others, readers can piece together their own picture of an artist who is idealistic and compassionate as well as abundantly gifted.His graphic design skills and his great affection for bold colors made his work in this period stand out.

The way he paints his papers—one day he paints all the blues needed for the sky, the ocean and the blue whale. Carle is a precise and energetic man whose large studio hums and clatters at one end with the high-tech whir of computers and scanners, and at the other with the old-fashioned rustling and scratching sounds the artist working with papers, pens, and brushes have generated for centuries.The students were given a small pieces of blue and yellow Model Magic paper clay to roll and knead together to make green.
