Overview

Art students of all ages should read Doing Art Together with sleeves rolled up and paintbrushes in hand. Based on the methods taught in the renowned parent-child workshops at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, this unusual, beautifully illustrated book goes far beyond traditional workshop approaches. It is hands-on art course that demystifies the art-making process with step-by-step, no-fail projects for beginners of any age or ability.

Drawing on more than 30 years' experience in art education, Muriel Silberstein-Storfer explains how to lead others in discovering (or rediscovering) the joy of working with paint, paper, collage, clay, and found materials to develop creative and perceptual skills. Introductory chapters discuss how to select materials and how to organize a workable studio environment. Each subsequent chapter covers a specific studio project, teaching the use of color, shape, line, pattern, and texture.

Demonstration photographs clarify the written procedures and art reproductions provide visual inspiration and additional context. Also included is a detailed guide to buying safe and reliable art supplies.
