Children's Literature
EXpressionism, pottery, etching, sculpture, Pointillism, Indianstyle miniature painting, and Surrealism all come to creative life in this handson, howto book. The reader can eXperiment with tones of ink to create a picnic scene like Germany's August Macke. Cardboard or fabric shapes can be used to create a colorful, Munterlike collage. Authenticlooking Greek pottery can be made with papiermache. While making an etching can be dangerous because of the chemicals involved, Lacey uses Styrofoam sheets to create prints like those of a famous French artist. Cardboard can be used to form ballet dancers as lively as Degas' metal sculptures. Inspiration can be drawn from the Pointillists to make Seurat's circus figures dance in a moving mobile. Creative children will learn to lead the observer's eye to the key points in their painting. A brief description is given of the artist responsible for each technique. Simple sketches are provided as guides and the supplies listed for each project are readily available. Both brilliant and practical, this manual will guide budding artists through delightful creations beyond their eXpectations. 2000, Copper Beech Books, $22.90 and $6.95. Ages 7 to 12.
