In this sketchbook we look at a few artists’ imaginings of mythical beasts and wild animals. At Pablo Picasso and his interest in the Minotaur and bulls; at Karel Appel and his child-like, mixed-up animal creations; and at Henri Rousseau’s tiger, a wild and exotic creature that he had never actually seen in the flesh! Finally, we’ll take a look at some legendary dragons from different cultures around the world.
Most objects in space are so distant that even the latest generation of telescopes can’t return images that do them aesthetic justice. Hence the value of artists, who can turn scientific findings into crazy craters and magical moons! Many artists that we love have been inspired by the stars and the world that sits above us, and in this sketchbook we will be inspired by Kandinsky, Alma Woodsey Thomas and others to create our own imaginary outer space creations.

Artists have a number of tools that they can use to evoke emotions in their viewers - for example, light, perspective and composition.
