Moulin Rouge is an era that is often loved. The Art of the Moulin Rouge invites readers to be not only entertained, but to be part of and share the beautiful art and culture of the day.
The Art of the Moulin Rouge
This book is absolutely fabulous! Whether you are a long time fan of the Moulin Rouge or only recently discovered it, you’ll enjoy this book. It’s full of over 25 interactive projects inspired by the world-famous venue. There are even 30 postcards you can share with someone you care about!
The book begins with a brief history of Moulin Rouge and some interesting facts that are quite enjoyable. It goes on to teach us a little about mixed media and how we can use it most effectively on the projects throughout the book.
The Art of the Moulin Rouge contains something to do for everyone’s art preference! Color by number, dot to dot puzzles, and coloring pages based on the most famous pieces from Moulin Rouge! On the back of each project is a description of the picture, what it’s based on, the title/author, and the date it originated.
The perforated pages can easily be torn out so that you don’t have to fight the book as you are working on your masterpiece, which is greatly appreciated!
There are also full color posters for you to enjoy! I am seriously considering framing some of them to decorate my walls. Unfortunately, that means I have to pick as they are printed front and back. Perhaps I’ll frame the pieces I color instead…
