Introduce children ages 7 and up to more than 50 great artists and their work with this lively family-oriented art resource. This treasure trove from the National Gallery of Art features works of art by, among others, Raphael, Rembrandt, Georgia O’Keeffe, Henri Matisse, Chuck Close, Jacob Lawrence, Pablo Picasso, and Alexander Calder, representing a wide array of artistic styles and techniques. Each chapter is focused on a theme ranging from studying nature and observing everyday life to breaking traditions and telling stories and includes works from a broad spectrum of artists, art mediums, nationalities, and time periods. Forty fun activities throughout will inspire the artist and art appreciator in every child. Written by museum educators with decades of hands-on experience helping children connect with art and the lives of artists, the projects include molding a clay figure inspired by Edgar Degas’s sculptures; drawing an object from touch alone, inspired by Joan Miró’s experience as an art student; painting a double-sided portrait reflecting physical traits and personality traits, inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s Ginevra de’ Benci; and creating a story based on a Mary Cassatt painting. Educators, homeschoolers, and families alike will find their creativity sparked by this beautiful gathering of art and information from the nation’s stellar collection.

About the Author:

The National Gallery of Art maintains one of the world's most renowned collections of American and European masterpieces from the 13th century to the present. The collection includes paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, sculpture, decorative arts, and new media arts. It is located in Washington, DC.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5 Up–An introduction to the works collected in the National Gallery of Art. More than 50 great artists are highlighted, from the 13th to the 21st centuries. The artists and their works and techniques are helpfully arranged stylistically in categories that include “Studying Nature,” “Observing Everyday Life,” “Exploring Places,” and “Telling Stories.” Through graceful, illuminating prose, readers learn how some of the most masterful artists (mostly European and American) the world has ever known created their art and developed their styles; some minorities and women are included. For each master, full-color reproductions of representative works are presented, along with enlightening quotes; occasionally, details of the artworks get lost in the gutters. For each artist, an “Explore More” feature invites readers to make their own art by replicating the masters' techniques and/or to engage in a variety of meaningful creative thinking and writing activities. This fine resource allows readers to develop an understanding and appreciation of fine art. It should have broad appeal for general audiences.–Carol Goldman, Queens Library, NYα(c) Copyright 2013.
