For Christmas I purchased 9 Ready to Learn jumbo stamp pads for my 3 grandchildren. They arrived quickly, excellent quality and a great price. Will shop again!

Kinetic Art

Starting with the work of the Futurists, the inclusion of motion became a central theme to art, in particular sculpture, of the 20th century. Kinetic art is really a generic term for art that addresses the presence, whether apparent or real, of moving parts. Naum Gabo and Marcel Duchamp were among the first to incorporate moving parts in their work in 1920. Just a few years later, László Moholy-Nagy, a Hungarian associated with Constructivism, made machines of light and motion from metal and plastic. The undisputed leader of early Kinetic art is Alexander Calder. His delicately calibrated mobiles included the element of chance, as the works are not motorized, but instead propelled by the motion of the viewer and the currents in the room. In the 1950s Kinetic art was recognized and popularized by critics. The landscape of Kinetic art is ever-evolving, as technological developments provide artists with new ways to incorporate movement into their work.

Latest Product Reviews

This product was exactly what I was looking for; no need to fine sand them as they are finished on both sides . The bass wood is easy to work with, and light weight; also really nice when finished with Ultra cover Gloss Clear made by Rust-Oleum . Will be ordering more in the near future, shipping was fast and items packed securely.

I got one of these when I was very young. It took me many years to realize just how much I liked it. Once I did, I began to panic, what if I lost it? Then I bought 5 more. I sleep better now.

I have 2, and highly recommend this great product. Anyone painting on canvas should have them. Its a simple idea with a funny name and a reasonable price. It makes "schlepping" a wet canvas so much easier. With 2 you can carry 2 paintings back to back.
