The Art Explorers series offers a new approach to art! Written by experts in the field, it encourages kids to interpret what they see in famous artworks, then try the techniques themselves.
Imagine That!: Activities and Adventures in Surrealism, the first book in the series, draws children into the fantastic, imaginative world of surrealism by highlighting the work of six famous surrealist artists. For each artist, a color reproduction of his or her famous artwork is paired with questions to get kids thinking about what they see. A short paragraph explains the artist's intentions, and a bio gives children a peek at the person behind the art. Easy-to-follow activities then provide hands-on experience with the artist's techniques, subject, and media, each illustrated with examples by actual kids. Techniques include collage, watercolor painting, drip painting, drawing, frottage, watercolor resist painting, printmaking, sculpture, and more.

About the Author:

Joyce Raimondo is the author of Art Safari, an award-winning series of children's books, kits, and on-line programming. She was the family programs coordinator at New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) for eight years. Now director of her own consulting company, she specializes in helping children access the arts. Clients include Sesame Street, Blues' Clues, and the Pollack-Krasner House. She lives in New York City.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-5–Raimondo encourages children to look closely at, ask questions about, and thoroughly explore famous works of art. Six surrealists are each represented by one masterpiece (e.g., Salvador Dalí by The Persistence of Memory, Max Ernst by The Couple,and Frida Kahlo by Self-Portrait on the Borderline Between Mexico and the United States). Each reproduction is accompanied by a short introduction and questions that require readers to take the time to examine, ponder, and imagine; two or more related hands-on art activities are also presented. In this way, youngsters have the opportunity to interpret a famous work of art in their own manner. One of the strengths of this book is the inclusion of artwork produced by children. Brief biographies of the subjects are appended. Although this offering provides only a very basic introduction to the surrealist movement, it offers a wealth of intriguing and easy-to-do activities.–Robin L. Gibson, formerly at Perry County District Library, New Lexington, OH
