What would you call your artistic style? Are you a fan of bright moving colors like Miro? Do you like to use positive and negative space like Chillida? Do you want to try drawing with scissors like Matisse did? This book is interactive. As you learn about 18 artists, you will be asked to draw, paint, cut and create both in and out of the newsprint pages. Many of the activities use simple art/craft supplies you likely have on hand (and if you don't you can improvise.) There are several colored pages in the back to get you started. It has a nice variety of projects that leave you room to add your own artistic flair. It does focus more on modern art, which is nice since there are loads of classical art books out there! Add this to your art lessons and see what happens! Approx. 130pp, sc, 8x11". ~ Sara
In this imaginative new activity book, Marion Deuchars makes learning about art fun. Young readers are introduced to more than thirty great artists, then encouraged to try out the techniques that lie behind their greatest works.
Short and accessible facts about each artist's life and works are followed by creative projects that Marion has devised based on the artist's particular techniques.
Take your pencil for a walk in the spirit of Paul Klee, experiment with color like Joan Miro, or create your own surrealist-inspired artwork.
