Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3–6—Representing a variety of cultures and styles, this book highlights 14 famous artworks and offers a craft project related to each one. The arrangement is roughly chronological, beginning with the cave paintings of Lascaux, France, and ending with the Pop Art of Andy Warhol. Each work is reproduced in a high-quality color photograph and described in a few paragraphs of succinct but interesting text. The projects are varied and appealing, and no two use the same medium or technique. Step-by-step instructions are illustrated with clear color photographs. Some of the projects require specialized materials or tools, such as "tile nippers" for the mosaic, but often there are suggestions for simpler alternatives, e.g., a paper mosaic instead of a tile one. Many of these artists are featured in Children's Book of Art (DK, 2009), which has more text and covers more individuals. This book, however, has more projects and they are described in much more detail. A great resource for teaching art history though hands-on activities.—Donna Cardon, Provo City Library, UT
