Great activities to teach art theory and techniques with activities based on the illustrations of children's books! Perfect for teachers and parents looking to offer extension activities.

An excellent book that ties in fundamental art concepts with children's literature. Each section includes a defination of the art concept being taught, fine art examples, children's literature examples and a few exploration project s(art projects).Children will enjoy the read aloud, discussing the illustrations in the book, and then trying their own hand at the process!Makes art accessible and fun for everyone. You don't need to be an art major to understand it.
