I just LOVE this book! It was a Christmas gift from one of my children and it is a gem.
A page a day...or whenever you pick it up and read it..gives you information of styles, artists, places, techniques, media and more. It even has exercises to do throughout the book and has questions to ponder.
And reading one page is easy. It's a start, a way to expand your world and learn something new, or as a spark of inspiration to delve deeper on your own at what interests you.
I think it would also be a great read aloud with a child, a stepping stone to explore all facets of art. And children will take what they will from it and make connections on their own over time.
You can read more about it here.
happy day! happy art!
