Mati learns how to compose a perfect photo with photographer Dorothea Lang as she sets up to take pictures of farm workers. Creating photographs teaches you how to see and notice details around you. Dorothea gets people to relax before she poses them for photos; she frames her subjects, looks for contrasts between dark and light, and uses parallel lines. Photos can sometimes tell stories better than words. Some are posed and some are taken as things happen. The right moment can happen very quickly, so you need to be ready to click!

Seven-year old Mati is a cheerful girl with a wild imagination and a zesty passion for art. Along with her eccentric sidekick Dada, she’s magically transported into the lives of the greatest artists in history.

Together, these two friends go on exciting adventures with the likes of Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali. Hand in hand, they travel throughout time and art, solving mysteries and sometimes getting into trouble ~ all the while learning from the Masters themselves.

This wonderful animated series is a fun and imaginative introduction to art for budding artists everywhere!

Also available in French.
