I know three children who have this book at home and love it. The whole family can learn about popular artists & their work and can then produce their own master pieces. The author introduces various media (water color, pastels, colored paper, aluminum etc) and styles. I'd say it's appropriate for ages 3-10. We've done many of the projects in it. Once for Mothers Day, we used the print with styro foam technique to make pictures for all the moms in neighborhood. We love it!

Featuring a famous work by each of 22 different artists, this book is a fantastic resource for summer reading, art-themed projects! The artists include van Gogh, Monet, Degas and others, including an unknown African mask artist. Featured styles include paintings, collage art, woodblock prints, sculptures, masks and more. Each work of art is featured in a photo and accompanied by a description of the piece, biographical information on the artist, technical information about the piece, and a great project to do in the artist's style using simple items like cotton balls, plastic forks, etc. I will be using this book a LOT!
