Look! Zoom in on Art!
(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.
