Book 2 introduces some new topics like sea themes (ships and sea monsters), night scenes, and royal accessories (clothing and furniture), but also expands on some favorites from the first lesson such as armor and animals.

Publisher Description:

Art Adventures in Narnia, is jammed packed with 55 art lessons that are inspired by the wonderful world of the fantasy stories..including those by C. S. Lewis and J.R. Tolkien. It contains lessons on how to draw lions for older and younger children, the talking trees, castles, thrones, fantasy creatures and much much more. Web sites that take you to master works of art are also included in the lessons. An example would be studying The Room by Matisse, examining the use of patterns, and drawing a room inside the professor's house which teaches one point perspective. We also have several lessons on knights and ancient weapons. Projects are for younger and older children.

Category Description for Art Adventures in Narnia:

C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia books are so rich in visual imagery and fascinating characters, it seems completely natural to incorporate art and crafts to bring subjects to life. Thanks to Sharon Jeffus, you can easily do this, whether you're studying the books in school or just reading them for pleasure. In 56 pages, Sharon offers a variety of ways students can apply their own creativity to the subjects of Narnia, whether it be through pencil and paper, paint, clay, cardboard, or a craft project. Subjects examined are lions, heraldry, knights, armor, weapons, crowns, thrones, portraits, printing, rabbits, beavers, gargoyles, fauns, stags, trees, castles, birds, ancient writing, dragons, unicorns, and maps. Along the way, Sharon mixes in art concepts, including perspective, shading, using a grid, scale, and positive and negative space. Because the topics are chosen from the Narnia books, this is not a cohesive art program; rather, it's set up as a book you can wander through as you read through the Narnia books, choosing topics that suit your fancy. Topical lessons vary quite a bit in content, and may include a craft project, a drawing challenge, thought-provoking questions, creative challenges, a website to look up works of art, examining a given picture, learning an art principle, etc. The suggested activities are very open-ended, and would be easy to tailor to children of different ages. Occasionally, several different activity options are offered for a topic; some will appeal more to older children, and some to younger children. The instructions for an activity are very simple, and freeform (more like suggestions), allowing as much adaptation as you want. As with their other very practical art books, you won't need any special art equipment for the lessons, just pencils, drawing paper, construction paper, glue, yarn, markers, crayons, and anything else you'd like to use. If you're anxious to explore Narnia with all of your senses and sharpen your artistic skills at the same time, you'll enjoy using this book as an art companion. Also available is a CD-ROM which contains the entire text of the book in electronic form.
