School Library Journal
Each chapter in this well-organized, heavily illustrated book features one element-line, texture, color, etc.-with five or six projects that cleverly support it. Basic concepts are explored using tried-and-true activities that are meant to "wow" both creators and observers. Icons display three challenge levels; step-by-step instructions help to ensure success. Examples of student work are used to show what the finished pieces may look like. Insets of reproductions of works by and quotes from famous artists are included as well. Teachers and caregivers will enjoy the straightforward, all-inclusive format that takes the guesswork out of presenting art concepts. Appended are Web addresses to view museums displaying various art masters and online art-supply sources. This glossy book is sure to inform budding artists and encourage a successful infusion of art into the classroom.
