Art Activity Book (Usborne)
Learn about portraits, still lifes, landscapes, sculpture and loads more terms/concepts as you follow a silly presentation of some serious art! There aren't many art books that are a funny read. It is just full of interesting little nuggets! Did you know that for thousands of years artists used a color called mummy brown (made from actual mummies)? As you read, there are lots of activities for the reader to complete that have to do with that page's theme: when learning about color tones, you will color in the same little picture with a warm and cool color palette to notice how they feel different to the viewer. Four pages of stickers make it even more interactive! I think students who love art would enjoy this book, but it would also introduce the non-artist to some great information! Some of the famous artists include: Van Gogh, Lowry, Kusama, Lichtenstein, Klee, Rousseau and many more. 80pp, 8.5" x 11", pb. ~Sara
