Readers might be familiar with some of the works of Vincent Van Gogh. What they might not know is that he was an expressionist! The expressionists used color and painting techniques to suggest mood and emotion. An introduction to expressionism and celebrated expressionists, this book presents readers with the life and famous works of Edvard Munch, Van Gogh, Marc Chagall, and more through understandable, age-appropriate content. Each colorful spread includes an art project based on the works of the artist profiled in that chapter, complete with step-by-step instructions and photographs to guide readers as they create their own masterpiece!
Colorful books engage the reader as they learn about specific art styles and artists of that era. Paul Klee and others represent the abstract movement. Edward Munch and company are here for the Expressionists. Rene Magritte and others show their Surrealist flair! I liked how the books refer to the more well-known artists and bring in others you may not know. About 10 artists are featured in each book. Try out their techniques with some easy art projects as you meet some of the art world’s rebels.
