YOUNG AT ART with James Ransome NEW RED BIKE Watercolor!

There are many different types of paints artists use, and in this episode of Young at Art, James Ransome demonstrates how to do a technique called “glazing” with watercolor! What will you create with James?


Written and Illustrated by James E. Ransome
Up and down! Round and round! Tom is having a blast zooming all over the neighborhood on his new red bike. But when Tom stops by Sam’s house to show off his wheels, he’s in for an unhappy surprise. The new bike is suddenly…gone. Could his best friend, Sam, be the culprit? This deceptively simple-seeming picture book offers a clever take on sharing.


James is both a painter and award-winning illustrator, with work exhibited in both private and public art collections. He has illustrated over 50 books, and his awards include the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award Picture Book Honor and the ALA Notable Book Award forSky Boys; the Coretta Scott King Honor for Uncle Jed’s Barbershop; the Coretta Scott King and IBBY awards for Creation; the NAACP Image Award for Let My People Go and Our Children Can Soar; and the Simon Wiesenthal Museum of Tolerance Award, Rip Van Winkle Award, SEBA Best Book of the Year Award and Dutchess County Executive Art Award for Individual Artist.

Watching you paint made my fingers itch to mix up some colors and layer them on — I’ve been doing it all digitally lately, but you made me miss paper and brushes with your wonderful portrait — thanks for the inspiration!
