Adventures in Art
Williamson Publishing, 1990, 1997 (revised edition)
This classic for the older child opens a diverse world of artistic expression and varied mediums.
Just imagine an author who encourages kids' natural creativity, while exposing them to the styles of art through the ages. Imagine, too, an author who lets kids make art with their hearts and their hands.
Here kids take over 200 artistic adventures into paints, pastels, ethnic and recycled art, sculpture, 3-dimensional art, still life, perspective, charcoal, landscapes, batik, silkscreen, and much more.
In this revised edition, kids meet the like of Henri Matisse, Grandma Moses, and Diego Rivera, applying the artists' styles to their own art--while broadening their view of what art can be.
