After the successful release of Coloring Ancient Egypt in 2020, the museums are excited to introduce the next in our series of activity books, Coloring German Expressionism.
Drawing from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s expansive holdings, Coloring German Expressionism explores the dynamic nature of color and its application through the eyes of expressionists working in various media. Learn about artists Paula Modersohn-Becker, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Franz Marc, Gabriele Münter, and others, and express yourself by coloring examples of their landscapes, still lifes, and portraiture.
Coloring German Expressionism is easily downloadable and can be printed on 8.5 × 11 pages or used digitally on a tablet or similar device.
We’d love to see your artwork and hear your feedback! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your creations, comments, or questions.
