Recommended Reading: The Noisy Paint Box
Once there was a little Russian boy who lived a boring, gray life full of rules and proper behavior. All that changed the day he received a box of paints as a gift and heard them whispering to him! As he began painting, he could hear all the happy sounds his bright colors made. Believe it or not, this is not a magical tale, but the true story of the famous modern artist Vasily Kandinsky. His imaginative paintings were a result of a medical condition called synesthesia that made him “hear” colors and his new way of painting changed the art world forever.
The Noisy Paint Box: The Colors and Sounds of Kandinsky’s Abstract Art by Barb Rosenstock with illustrations by Mary Grandpre.
