Transcript of People, Places and Things: A Lesson in line, shape, form and color based on the art of Friedensreich Hundertwasser

PEOPLE, PLACES and Things a lesson in lines, Shapes,colors and forms inspired by Friedensreich Hundredwasser
(or Peaceland Hundred Waters) ( Friedensreich Regentag Dunkelbunt Hundertwasser was born in a country called Austria on December 15, 1928. Hundredwasser started off as a young artist at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, the capitol of Austria. Hundredwasser hated how
