Overview

Why are none of the students in Raphael's school paying attention? Who made a doodle into a masterpiece? How do you paint speed? Can collecting things be art? What kind of sculpture is supposed to disappear? Can you trust a painting? How would you make a self-portrait of yourself? Can you paint music?

Following the international success of The Art Book for Children (Book One), this second volume will continue to expand the minds and creativity of children aged from seven to eleven. Thirty new artists and key examples of their works have been selected to encourage children to ask why the artists do what they do. Both volumes of The Art Book for Children are fun for young readers, ideal tools for teachers and parents, and perfect introductions for all those approaching art for the first time.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 4-7- This follow-up to The Art Book for Children (Phaidon, 2005) is similar in size, format, and tone to that volume. Each spread contains sharp, full-color reproductions accompanied by four or five paragraphs discussing the different aspects of art suggested by the particular work. The book includes well-known classics, modern concept art, painting, and sculpture. Renshaw alternates modern and traditional art, but otherwise there is no real organization to the book. The tone is casual yet energetic and the text is both interesting and thought-provoking. It is not condescending, but is easily accessible to even a fairly young audience. Renshaw answers some questions about the artwork, and poses questions on every spread for readers to consider. In a discussion of Winslow Homer's Snap the Whip , she states, "We know the boy is moving-but how does the artist make him look as if he's moving when, of course, the picture is totally still?" Reading the book is something like walking through an art gallery with a really good docent. This is a great choice for schools and libraries.-Donna Cardon, Provo City Library, UT
