  • Look! Zoom in on Art!

    Gillian Wolfe

    Hardcover (Frances Lincoln Children's Books, July 28, 2007)
    In this fun and accessible book, children learn to develop their ability to "see" art in new ways. Each spread features a different painting and focuses on a different perspective -- up, down, around, inside, outside, and more. Simple text and questions invite children to examine each work more closely, giving them a better understanding of the painting and of artistic techniques. Engaging art activities offer additional participation and stimulation. The paintings represent a broad range of periods and include works by Mondrian, van Gogh, John Stewart Curry, Charles Sheeler, and Giuseppe Arcimboldo.

  • LOOK! Zoom in on Art

    Gillian Wolfe

    Hardcover (Oxford University Press, Sept. 12, 2002)
    Look! is a dynamic, beautifully illustrated guide to teaching young people how to look at art. Acclaimed art educator Gillian Wolfe selected 18 paintings from around the world and across art history to help develop the art of "seeing" a painting from all perspectives--the most important skill in learning about art. Brilliant color reproductions and engaging instructions guide us to actively think about what we see when we look at art: 路 Are we looking UP at flying trapeze artists or DOWN at clowns in the circus ring? 路 What's happening THROUGH the archway in the background or BEHIND a posed group of children where a cat is staring at a pet bird? 路 What happens when you turn a picture upside down? 路 How does the artist make a picture look like the characters in it are moving quickly? 路 How can you tell if a train interior is old-fashioned? 路 What are the clues that a family at the dinner table is in the country? Written especially for children but with a light-hearted approach that will delight adults as well, Look! is an ingenious approach to teaching children to enjoy art.
