Edgar Degas Art Projects for Kids


Edgar Degas

French (1834-1917)

Edgar Degas’ drawing secrets are discovered through his techniques of perspective and composition.  Have you ever heard the expression, “Use your right brain?”  Our art activity for Degas explains the creative right-brain theory to the children.  They experience right-brain drawing exercises where they draw upside down to “trick’ that reluctant right brain to come forward.
