Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-These titles promote art appreciation through exposure to well-known works, guided viewing, thought-provoking questions, and coordinated projects. Different aspects of the featured genre are presented through a variety of artwork, both two and three-dimensional. The represented styles and periods range from Gothic to Abstract. Artists include Pablo Picasso, Grant Wood, Jacob Lawrence, Frida Kahlo, Henry Moore, Jacques-Louis David, Piero della Francesca, and others. The texts suggest additional artists and artworks for further investigation. Two pages of projects follow each two pages of appreciation lessons and serve to extend the information and ideas presented. Activities have clear directions that encourage creativity. Materials and techniques range from the familiar pipe cleaners and cardboard to digital photos. Examples of completed artworks are credited to children ages 8-11. The books conclude with short paragraphs about each artist. Teachers will find easy-to-understand art lessons and projects and students will find inspiration in these well-organized, attractive titles.-Carolyn Janssen, Children's Learning Center of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
