The Kid Should See This

Making art with everyday objects: Christoph Niemann

Award-winning artist and author Christoph Niemann has quite a few books and apps for kids of all ages — I Lego N.Y., Words, as well as Petting Zoo and Chomp. In this Quartz video, he shares examples from his new book Sunday Sketching and talks about the perception-bending play that goes into his art-making. With equal parts boldness and whimsy, that play can turn an ink jar into a camera, headphones into a gorilla, and an avocado into a catcher’s mitt.

Making art with everyday objects… an excellent art project to try at home.
