    Here are 150 activities that teach the styles, works, and techniques of the great masters - Van Gogh, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, and more. To imitate Michelangelo's Sistene Chapel, the young artist paints while reclined on his back with paper taped to the bottom of a table. To experience Van Gogh's style, children mix paints into a thick substance called "impasto" and then paint with heavy, swirling brush strokes. Each activity contains a brief history of the artist, a project, and an example of that artist's work.

    By the same authors of Discovering Great Artists, above, this project book features 75 art activities, all based on the work of famous American artists. The very helpful table of contents groups the artists into four categories, based on periods and style and also provides at-a-glance guidance on the art activity used, the style, the technique used for the project, the recommended age level, and the level of adult help. Each artist and corresponding project is featured on one or two glossy, full-color pages which offer background on the artist, a portrait of the artist as interpreted by a child, a description of the activity, a list of materials, and a step-by-step procedure. You'll enjoy activities such as designing a magazine cover like Norman Rockwell, drawing a busy scene in the style of Grandma Moses, creating a stained glass window with colored "bubbles" like Frank Lloyd Wright, creating your own "Seussel" character in the style of Theodor Seuss Geisel, and much, much more. You can also visit the author's website (www.brightring.com/americanartists.html) for links to examples of each artist's work. If your art appreciation course includes a study of American artists, you won't want to bypass this one! 142 pgs, pb. – Jess

    Learn to slow down and enjoy life as you observe and reflect upon the world around you. In Part One of this book, you will learn what it means to keep a nature journal, how to start exploring, and how to express your thoughts using the written word and drawings. If you're not a great artist, don't panic! This book will help you lay aside your fears as it encourages you to improve your skills through practice.

    Part Two of this manual focuses on the ongoing journal, providing ideas to keep your journal active throughout the changing seasons. Centering a portion of your seasonal observations on a stationary object or place such as the tree across the street, an easily observed park or street corner, or even the moon will lend a sense of continuity to your entries.

    The final section is entitled "Learning and Teaching Nature Journaling." This segment consists of a number of exercises to help the reader gain confidence with basic drawing skills including contour, capturing basic shapes, foreshortening, perspective, and shading. The author has also provided helpful tips to simplify drawing flowers, landscapes, weather, reptiles and amphibians, birds, and other objects which may prove difficult to capture on paper.

    The last few chapters of this section are devoted to the idea of teaching the art of nature journaling to people of all ages, and adapting nature journaling to a group activity. This portion stresses the role of the teacher in creating learning situations that stimulate learners to begin writing or drawing in a journal.

    The book has just a bit of evolutionary content in it, but nothing that can't be avoided. A helpful appendix at the back of the book gives suggested reading, additional resources, and a suggested scale for teachers to assess nature journaling skills. Complete index. - Rachel

    Trek across the U.S. with Lewis and Clark, encountering wild animals, Indians, landscapes, and vegetation through tons of fun art and writing activities! Students are encouraged to keep a journal and write selections similar to what Meriwether and William might have written, such as descriptions of plants, animals and places that had never been seen before by westerners, and poems and other short writing activities. A variety of art activities and crafts involve children in the journey: learn how to draw many different animals, make your own telescope and quill pen, discover some of America's great nature artists, and many other activities. Real passages from the journals of Lewis and Clark are interspersed throughout the pages and are the basis for each project. Related websites for further exploration are included, as well as a glossary of terms in the back. The revised and expanded Geography Matters version of the Visual Manna original. ~ Steph

    "For People Who Can't Even Draw a Straight Line," "No Talent Required" - hey, this woman knows me! From Sandra Angelo (Discover Art), comes this easy self study guide and workbook that, using a simple, four-step drawing system, transforms your skills from barely beginner to accomplished artist in a few easy lessons. I like the directions to "begin at the beginning and work your way through the book sequentially," nice and simple. It's full of irreverent pearls of wisdom, like "The race goes not to the hare but the tortoise" and "those who don't give up succeed," and (my personal favorite), "Talent is REALLY not necessary." Sandra gives us a short introduction that would give hope to even the most drawing-challenged person. If you draw for 45 minutes to one hour per day, you can finish this book in 60-90 days (if you're in a hurry to improve). Otherwise, plan on spending longer relative to the amount of time per day you can allocate to drawing. Next, a materials section acquaints us with the "tools of the trade" - some basic equipment we need to gather before jumping in. Then on to the instruction. Some of this book is reminiscent of the Draw Today program, especially the use of grids for beginning artists. As promised, the instruction is super-easy to follow and all the work can be done right in the book. Instruction progresses logically from seeing and drawing shapes, to lines, to shading, creating texture, gradation, hatching, and plenty of good practice in a lengthy additional exercise section. The methods and exercises look great, and, if I didn't have a lot to do..... But, someday, I'll actually have some time each day to use this! In the meantime, I'm hoping many aspiring artists out there will benefit from Sandra's instruction. 150 pgs. in all, with 130 black-and white photos and 25 line drawings - including plenty of "before" and "after" testimonials to show this method really works.

    Most children are intrigued by birds because of their quick, hurried movements, and especially by their ability to fly. John James Audubon was a child that was enthralled by birds and their behaviors. Eventually, he would become known as the best painter of birds, capturing their natural, various behaviors from flying to preening. Born in France, Audubon was sent to Pennsylvania by his father to escape Napoleon's war. While there, his fascination with birds grew, and he desired to capture the beautiful birds on paper with his artistic abilities. But the young artist wondered one thing: Where did the birds go during the winter, and did the same ones return in the spring? With colorful and various illustrations, you will enjoy exploring this book as you discover Audubon's key to discovering the answer. hc. – John

    This volume covers the history of the world, from the beginning through modern times (into the 21st century). While not an in-depth view, it covers all time periods and shows readers what was happening in all regions of the world. All events of note are included with brief write-ups and lots of photographs, paintings, and pictures. The text is very readable, and every page is eye-catching with full color examples of tools, weapons, historical sites, and more. Timelines are included showing events from around the world happening at concurrent times. Republished by My Father's World (with permission of DK), the first two chapters, Introduction to Human History (570MYA-40,000) and Early People (40,000-5000BC), have been removed to make it more Christian-friendly. Following chapters cover the First Civilizations (5000-1200BC), Traders and Warriors (1200-500BC), Growth of Empires (500BC-AD1), Decline of the Ancient World (1-400), Religious Worlds (400-800), New Nations (800-1000), Monks and Invaders (1000-1200), Conquest and Plague (1200-1400), Expansion of Knowledge (1400-1500), Great Rulers (1500-1600), Commerce and Colonies (1600-1700), Age of Inquiry (1700-1750), Age of Revolution (1750-1800), Independence and Industry (1800-1850), Rise of Nationalism (1850-1900), World Goes to War (1900-1919), Peace and War (1919-1946), and One World (1946-2000s). Christianity is introduced with major events like the Exodus, Christ's crucifixion and such being discussed (although usually introduced as stories with no historical evidence). Overall, this is a good look at the entire world as it has grown and changed from ancient times until today, full of fascinating facts waiting to be discovered. ~ Megan

    If you can train yourself in the habit, keeping a nature journal offers not only the opportunity to continually hone artistic skills, but also provides ample opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, develop a deeper appreciation for nature, enhance penmanship and writing abilities and become a precious keepsake for years to come. This guide takes students lesson-by-lesson through developing their own nature journal and building the skills they'll need to capture examples of nature's beauty. Created by Barry Stebbing, author of the How Great Thou Art courses, these lessons are formatted similarly with short, easy-to-read lessons and a related assignment. There are 47 lessons total, the first segment focusing on assignments that can be done in the classroom, and later assignments which students will get to head outdoors to do. Lessons include designing the journal cover; learning how to appropriately frame the page; creating various tones in green and brown, and drawing specific objects or scenes such as onions, vines or tree trunks, landscapes, night scenes, farm animals, feathers, insects and much more. The lessons are illustrated with a variety of related drawings (both color and black-and-white) by Barry, some of which serve as examples to copy, and others to provide inspiration or examples for students' own drawing. The last piece of the book provides several blank journal pages with lines, a space for an inspiring quote and blank areas for drawing. You'll need a few specific supplies to complete the lessons, including a hardbound journal, a legal pad, a rubber band, colored pencils, a drawing pen, a writing pen, glue stick, tape, washable markers, a #6 watercolor brush (to use with the markers) and semi-gloss paper. Especially if you're not already emphasizing art in your curriculum, a course in nature journaling can provide your students a rewarding, creative tie-in to your science, English or even handwriting program – and get them outdoors to enjoy that sunshine! – Jess

    If you're looking for some activities to enhance your study of The Mystery of History V.1, this handy CD-ROM is for you. Jean Henrich, a gifted artist, has provided the instructions to complete eight art projects to complement the main text. Thirty-five reproducible coloring pages are also included on the CD. Linda Lacour Hobar, author of Mystery of History V.1, has selected projects and coloring pages that will remind students of the ancient history they are learning, and she has linked the projects to corresponding lessons from the text. The correlating title and lesson number is identified with each project on the CD-ROM. Background information for each project, fun facts, brief histories, and lists of materials needed are included. The projects can be fairly complicated, require adult supervision, and require basic art supplies along with special materials like plasticine and polymer clay, acrylic paint, dried leaves, mosaic tiles, foam sheets, a hand drill, grout, and more (none of which is included). Step-by-step directions are given along with color photographs of assembly. Students can fossilize a fern in plaster, sculpt a Sumerian bas-relief, build an Egyptian shaduf, create an ancient oil lamp, assemble a Chinese cricket cage, construct a Greek temple façade, make Chinese paper cuts, and arrange a Roman animal mosaic. These projects will help students bring ancient history to life as they study and create, and the projects have different difficulty levels that can be geared toward various ages. Tips for successful projects and a suggested outline for the study are included, recommending 2 projects for each quarter so all 8 are finished in a year. The 35 coloring pages included on the CD-ROM provide five pages for each of the projects - five each for ancient botanicals, ancient Mesopotamia and Samaria, ancient Egypt, Israel, ancient China, ancient Greece, and ancient Rome. The projects and the coloring pages are in a PDF format on the CD-ROM, so you can scroll through them or easily print them off. This is a great supplement to The Mystery of History Volume 1 and will provide students with art to keep and enjoy that will remind them of the ancient history they have learned. Minimum requirements to run CD-ROM: Windows 95, 16 MB hard disk space, and optional additional 50 MB hard disk space to view some video on the CD.

    More structured than a nature journal, this "outdoor workbook" is a great tool for families and students who prefer some guided instruction and inspiration as they observe, record, and learn from nature throughout the year. It features a varied, interactive format that kids won't soon get bored with, great forms for observation you can print from the publisher's website, and lots of terrific activity suggestions. The book is divided into three parts: "How to Be a Naturalist," "Learning the Sky," and "Exploring Nature." The first part introduces students to the skills and tools of the naturalist, provides suggestions and forms for setting up a nature journal, offers ideas for observation and appreciation (listing species that live in your neighborhood, making a "nature arrangement" or using observations to write a nature poem), and even includes quick drawing lessons that all culminate in an "field expedition." Because weather plays such a large role in nature, it gets its own chapter, and students are encouraged to draw the sky over different days and times, "read" clouds, draw a weather map, learn why we have seasons, play with shadows, keep a moon journal, discover nocturnal animals, learn three constellations and write a sky poem. The majority of "Exploring Nature" is organized by month (January-December) and provides specific activities and mini-lessons on seasonal nature topics. In March students will learn about the spring equinox, check for life in small pools of water and streams, turn over logs and rocks, draw birds, observe and draw budding twigs, and much more. In August, the focus is on water (the book assumes a family vacation here!) and students learn about the water cycle, find out more about a local stream or river, experiment with water, learn about water creatures, find sources of water in nature, keep a nature journal on vacation, and sleep under the stars. Several forms are provided for all months, including "Nature Notes" and "Nature Quest" forms, and a blank page for a "Picture of the Month." You can print more of these online for ongoing observation projects. Quite a few helpful resources for parents can be found in the appendix, such as safety information, suggestions on how to use nature journals in teaching and how to use the book to meet state curriculum standards, a bibliography (including suggested field guides and books for kids), recommended websites and a list of nature organizations. If you're new to nature studies and looking for some time-saving forms and activity suggestions, this is a resource to consider – and its reasonable enough you may want to get each child their own copy. – Jess

    Mixed media art is a great way to explore, experiment, and blend multiple mediums into one single artwork creating some interesting visual effects. For example, oil pastels can be applied to paper like chalk and they repel water, so layering light to vivid watercolor washes over the top can create beautiful depths of color with texture. This 74-piece set from Royal & Langnickel® has a wide assortment of supplies to start dabbling in mixed mediaall contained in a stylish, clear-window tin case (13.75"x 7") with handle. The set includes 2 sketching pencils (HB, 2B), 10 watercolor pencils, 6 oil pastels, 6 acrylic paint tubes, 24 watercolor cakes, 2 paint brushes (round and flat), 1 sharpener, 1 white vinyl eraser, 20 sheets of mixed media paper, and an artist guide booklet with basic tips and instructions on using the materials in your artwork. ~ Emily

    There are hundreds of how-to-draw books out there, but this one is different… it’s dry-erase! So, no worries if that fish is a little lopsided, or the giraffe’s legs are too short. Just erase and draw it again! After, all, drawing is all about practice. Each two-page spread gives step-by-step directions for drawing a very simple object or animal on the left-hand page, and the right-hand page provides a scene with some other variations of the object already provided but plenty of space so the young artist can add their own drawings to the picture. The background is white, with pops of color in the background and a few full-color photos for added interest.  The step-by-step instructions for the drawings are very simple – great for young children with developing motor skills. Most can be completed in four steps. My six year-old son tested this one out and really enjoyed it! With 56 total pages and over 100 objects to draw, there is plenty of content here to hold their interest. Great for the car or waiting rooms! Spiral-bound, 56 pages. Includes a black dry-erase pen. – Jess

    More than just artist biographies, this book goes behind the scenes of many great works of art from a variety of periods and styles. Everyone from the Dutch masters to modern American artists are here. Gorgeous color photos accompany interesting text. There are 40 projects for students to try themselves, ranging from writing a poem to making a collage to creating an action figure or puppet and writing a story about it. Over 50 artists including Rembrandt, Matisse, Degas, O’Keefe, and Calder. It’s a different approach to an art book and I quite liked it. In fact, I read the whole book! It could be a good starting point for a unit study or just add it to any art program at home or at school. 175 pp, sc. ~ Sara

    Written by the sisters of the man who wrote the American Boy's Handy Book (Lina and Adelia Beard - two of the founders of Girl Scouting in America), this book is full of various activities and pastimes for girls. Originally published in 1887, the book does have some outdated or impractical ideas, but many are surprisingly fun and doable. Even the ones you can't do are fun to read about as you imagine the fun that Victorian American girls would have had. Like the Boy's book, the activities are divided into spring, summer, fall, and winter, so pastimes can be found that fit into certain times of year and holidays. The book opens with some great ideas for an April Fool's Day party that makes me wish I had discovered this book when I was younger. Maybe I'll give a few of the ideas a try around the office anyway! Then the book works through the year giving ideas for projects, devices, toys, gifts, dolls, recipes, decorations, perfumes, modeling, painting, and games. Clear and practical directions for how to make or play everything are provided, and the book is sure to encourage girls to get out and be active while remaining courteous and ladylike. Preserving flowers, using leaves and flowers for decorations, Easter egg activities, how to dry starfish, how to make a hammock, corn-husk dolls, making a fan, ornamental gourds, how to make a telephone, home exercise, window decorations, making homemade candy, and plenty of indoor and outdoor games are just a few of the ideas included. Black and white drawings illustrate many of the ideas. 474 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
