Product Description:

More than just artist biographies, this book goes behind the scenes of many great works of art from a variety of periods and styles. Everyone from the Dutch masters to modern American artists are here. Gorgeous color photos accompany interesting text. There are 40 projects for students to try themselves, ranging from writing a poem to making a collage to creating an action figure or puppet and writing a story about it. Over 50 artists including Rembrandt, Matisse, Degas, O'Keefe, and Calder. It's a different approach to an art book and I quite liked it. In fact, I read the whole book! It could be a good starting point for a unit study or just add it to any art program at home or at school. 175 pp, sc. ~ Sara

We borrowed this from the library and fell in love with it. The art pieces chosen are stunning, the range of artists is quite large, and there is NO NUDITY...yay! Each painting/sculpture invites the reader to look closer, inspect colors, feelings and brush strokes. It's just such an inviting book, so grateful to have stumbled upon it. We've used this as a springboard for our daily homeschool art/picture study.
