Impressionist Art (Create It!)
Some of the most famous artists of all time were from the impressionist school. Claude Monet, Georges Seurat, and Edgar Degas all created works that have stood the test of time—and they were impressionists! Readers learn about the characteristics of impressionist art and the techniques used to create it. Master impressionists are profiled throughout the book, including information about their beautiful works. Readers can use this new knowledge to follow step-by-step instructions and make several art projects in the impressionist mode. Tips and full-color photographs help readers as they create, teaching them techniques they can use in future projects.
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.
