Storyboard Text

  • Look what I built!
  • BE TAME!
  • This circus is fun to draw!
  • Sandy's Circus  By Tanya Lee Stone Illustrated by Boris Kulikov
  • Paris is where art comes to life!
  • The famous artist, Alexander Calder (Sandy), loved building things as a kid, but he never thought he would become an artist.
  • This is SOOOO cool!
  • After being inspired by a "fiery red sunrise", Sandy new he was destined to be an artist. He began by sketching images of the Barnum & Bailey Circus.
  • That next year, Sandy traveled to Paris with a pair of pliers and a roll of wire. Periodically, he would stop and make whatever he saw by bending and curling the wire. 
  • He got so good at manipulating that wire that he created and conducted his own wire circus. People loved it and traveled hundreds of miles to see his work. 
  • Thank you!!!
  • And that is how Alexander Calder became a famous artist.
