Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Read and learn about different types of lines in this book from the "Get Art Smart" series. Each chapter explores line from the way it appears—thin, curved, zigzagged, or broken—to the way they are used in art. Works of art are used to illustrate the concept of line; there are captions that identify the artwork and artist. Insets point out the features of line to the readers. Examine the work of Popnova's Linear Construction or check out the lines in van Gogh's The Road Menders. In the back of the book, there is a pictorial glossary; the words in the glossary are designated in bold print in the main text. Some readers may need support with the content vocabulary and the informational text layout. For those young artists wishing to find out more information, there are a few books and websites that are suggested. In addition, there are five more books in this series about art. The series is a nice and simple resource to use when discussing art concepts as part of an art lesson or part of art appreciation for beginners. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3–These books describe and explain concepts, techniques, and phenomena in art in a collaborative, first-person plural tone that uses accessible, well-thought-out phrases. Concrete visual examples are in the form of frequent and excellent reproductions of fine art in a variety of mediums. Although the examples are, for the most part, drawn from the Western canon, Egyptian, Japanese, and Native American art also make appearances. An exceptionally spacious layout gives each concept room to breathe. Even children who regularly employ the relevant techniques will benefit from the explanations and illustrations in these books. The authors also provide short but excellent lists of print and online further-reading. Respectable and respectful resources.
