    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.

    Some of the best stories are the ones that come from real people in history. One such story starts with a boy who was raised a Quaker in the Pennsylvania region before the founding of the United States. Benjamin West enjoyed painting so much he did what most would never think of doing: He made paint from clay, plants, and dirt, and fashioned paintbrushes from the tail of his cat, Grimalkin! Follow the great American writer Marguerite Henry as she traces the early years of this young man and his cat in this exciting tale. 147 pgs, pb. John

      Graduating to alcohol based markers means that you have turned a corner in your artistic skills! They are completely different to work with than regular markers. The alcohol in them makes the colors flow and the effects you can make are exciting! Apply wet to wet for the best ombre shading. I bought a set to use with my adult coloring books. You have to practice to get familiar with the medium. This set includes 24 vivid, archival colors. Each marker has a fine tip and a brush tip. You can layer the colors once they dry to get deeper shades. Where regular markers go on streaky, these go on evenly. You will feel like a professional colorist, illustrator or cartoonist! This set is a budget-friendly option compared to other alcohol-based markers we carry. Colors include:  1 black, 3 grays, 4 greens, 4 blues, 2 purples, 1 yellow, 1 red, 2 pink, 3 browns, 2 beige tones, and 1 colorless blender (lay this down first, then apply colors and watch them bleed together). ~Sara

    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

    For all you Ms. Frizzle fans, here's another Magic School Bus Science Kit. You can let your little ones do chemistry like all the students in Ms. Frizzle's science class. This Chemistry Lab comes packaged in a replica of the Magic School Bus (made of cardboard measuring 15" long by 8 ½" high) with storage space and trays for all the kits components. This kit includes most of the hard-to-find materials needed to do experiments: Petri dish, string, peppercorn, balloon, wooden craft stick, piece of iron, ph chart, 25 ml measuring cup, ph paper, pipette, blue and red litmus paper, pencil, safety goggles, plastic measuring spoon, plastic funnel, 3 plastic test tubes, test tube brush, soap, cardboard, clay, white blue, borax, yeast, chromatography paper, foil, liquid dish soap, straw, and ruler.

    51 glossy cards accompany the kit and will help your young chemist get started learning about scientific tools, measurements, acids and bases, and much more. The first twelve cards offer general information, messages from Ms. Frizzle, safety and instructions for the kit. Cards 13 through 51 are experiments. The front of each card gives a list of materials needed, steps to follow for the experiment, and illustrations. An explanation of the experiment is found on the reverse side of the card. You will get to make sticky ice, test materials for acidity, inflate a balloon without blowing into it, make pepper jump, learn about buoyancy, make a speed boat, and much more as you learn with Ms. Frizzle and her class.

    A data notebook is included for recording data in specific lessons. This is a small 5"x 7" stapled booklet with space to record observations. If you are doing the experiments with multiple students, you can have them work in teams to record the information or let them make their own notebook – this one is pretty simple. Use this kit as a chemistry unit study or alongside your curriculum – either way you will have fun with Ms. Frizzle and the gang! ~ Donna

    How would you score on a Civics exam? What about the U.S. Naturalization test? This book gives you the chance to find out. A valuable reference for anyone wishing to "brush up" on their knowledge of American government, history, and civics, the book begins with two civics tests: the Intercollegiate Studies Institute Civic Literacy Exam and the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services Naturalization Test. The rest of the book focuses on topics that should be common knowledge to all Americans: the naturalization process, an American history timeline, and an overview of how U.S. government works at the federal and state/local levels. There is also a historical documents section with the text of the Declaration of Independence, Articles of the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Gettysburg Address. Other short chapters hold quotes from notable Americans, a breakdown of the Armed Forces, lists of holidays and Presidents/Vice Presidents, brief stories of Americans that have made a difference, information on volunteering, and other information relevant to U.S. citizens. The back of the book includes a glossary, fun facts about America, and a list of civic resources and organizations with website addresses. 162 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    What would it be like to be the slave of the great Spanish painter Diego Velázquez? To grind his paints, stretch his canvases, and clean his paint brushes every day? This fictional novel by Elizabeth Borton de Treviño gives a creative look into the life of Juan de Pareja, the slave of Velázquez. Throughout, Juan tells of his master's life through his own eyes - what it was like to watch Velázquez paint, to accompany him on the errands of the King, and to learn to paint in secret by watching his master's technique, as such work was forbidden to slaves. Little is known for certain about Velázquez and Juan's relationship, but the author does a wonderful job drawing from what is known to create this enjoyable Newberry Medal book with a bittersweet ending. 180 pgs, pb. – elise

    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
