Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A variety of artistic expressions invite young readers to re-examine paintings they may take for granted or that might once have intimidated them. Art Is by Bob Raczka pairs a simple rhyming text with a wide range of artwork designed to expand readers' appreciation of what constitutes art. For example, "Art is to kneel on" depicts an Anatolian prayer rug, while "Art is pasted" accompanies a Romare Bearden collage. The final page pairs "Art is how artists get you to think" with an image of Auguste Rodin's "The Thinker." A simple design puts the intriguing images front and center, and for museumgoers, the home of each work is listed. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Highly recommend for teaching elementary art

    Great book with ALL mediums and important works are covered in this book. Great to use as exemplars and inspiration for creating art with young people. Great for preperation before visiting an Art Museum as well. Two paintbrushes up!
