Item No: 6825


by Jeanne Walker Harvey, illus. by Elizabeth Zunon.

"My hands sing the blues when I paint and cut and paste."

"I'm like a singer calling out, then holding back. When I put a beat of color on an empty canvas, I never know what's coming down the track."

"Visual jazz” is how the artist Romare Bearden referred to his works, and often compared the creative processes of jazz and his art. Introduce both with his intriguing life. He also had a passion for trains and adds that riff to his jazzy collages.  The author based her text on the concept of the blues. Create your own visual music and join the art jam session as you read and enjoy the collages.
