Indians in Art: Catlin's Story

Meet George Catlin, a genre artist from the 1800s, who journeyed west to paint the Plains Indians and their way of life. With a goal to record history by painting the appearance and customs of America's native people, we are forever indebted to him for providing us a visual record of a different time and its peoples. Containing authentic illustrations, basic art techniques, coloring pages and historically accurate text, Sharon Jeffus (Visual Manna) has given us a fun, hands-on resource that ties art and history together to engage even our most reluctant learners. sc, 28 pgs. Also available on a CD-Rom consisting of PDF files of the actual book, so you can print off the pages you want as you need them. ~Deanne
