    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.

    This book could make a wonderful art program for younger students, incorporating both art appreciation and projects in a beautiful, easy to use format. The book features 22 impressive works of art from around the world and from a variety of periods. Each work is shown on a spread of pages along with a few short, interesting paragraphs of information about the work itself, the techniques used, and the artist who created it. Then you flip the page to see how you can imitate that work and style using simple materials and methods. For example, the first work highlighted is Van Gogh's "The Starry Night." After looking at the painting and reading about it, you turn to the next page, which has step-by-step directions to help you make your own swirly landscape using thick paints and a plastic fork. In six steps you go from drawing a simple landscape sketch, adding color, and using the fork to manipulate the paint into swirly patterns like those found in Van Gogh's painting. The end products are very attractive, and completing the projects will help students remember the distinctive styles of the artists they've studied. The projects pages are very colorful and offer beautiful illustrations of the finished projects to give students a visual aid. Throughout the 22 works/projects, students will be introduced to 3-D art, paintings, abstract art, prints, collages, Chinese brush painting, and other styles/types of art for a well-rounded but fun early art education.

       Learn about portraits, still lifes, landscapes, sculpture and loads more terms/concepts as you follow a silly presentation of some serious art! There aren’t many art books that are a funny read. It is just full of interesting little nuggets! Did you know that for thousands of years artists used a color called mummy brown (made from actual mummies)? As you read, there are lots of activities for the reader to complete that have to do with that page’s theme: when learning about color tones, you will color in the same little picture with a warm and cool color palette to notice how they feel different to the viewer. Four pages of stickers make it even more interactive! I think students who love art would enjoy this book, but it would also introduce the non-artist to some great information! Some of the famous artists include: Van Gogh, Lowry, Kusama, Lichtenstein, Klee, Rousseau and many more. 80pp, 8.5” x 11”, pb.  ~Sara

    This is one of those inexpensive, craft room staples that once you have used it, you will find loads of projects to use it for! It is a liquid that, when dry, creates a thick, shiny, clear coating onto your paper crafts, jewelry, photo art or what have you. You could tint it blue and use it for water in a diorama with your Safari animal figures! It's great for holding beads or glitter in place. Save the time of layering coat after coat onto your projects. Drying time will vary according to thickness. ~ Sara

    You don't have to commit to an art curriculum to work it into your day. Sometimes you just need some ideas, inspiration--and in this case--some famous works of art with projects that are created for you! There is a lot of "thinking" and "working" like an artist. Artists do see the world differently. I like this sort of book for a non-artsy parent who may think they can't teach art to their children. It would be great for a co-op or classroom too where you need some manageable art projects. I think the target age group makes this particular book special. It can be used by kids without much supervision, given some materials and a space to work. The projects are short and simple, but can be elaborated upon you choose. It is a good combination of art from famous artists with projects a child can do with a nod to those artists' work. For example, looking at Van Gogh's self portrait, try one of your own using big swirly brushstrokes. Another project is to look at an abstract painting by Picasso, draw some scribbly lines on a paper and find a picture within the scribble then coloring that in. There is papier mache, painting, drawing, block printing, paper crafts like a mobile, clay and more over 50 different artists and projects! Step by step directions are clear and easy to follow for a student or parent/teacher. You could work through it front to back, or randomly open to a page and do that one! I liked the clear instruction, variety of art and media, and the pick up/put down ease of this book. 8.5x10.25", 128pp, pb. ~ Sara

      I used posters in my classroom to reinforce the topics we were learning. I figured that if a child was going to look around, their eyes may as well rest on something meaningful! This set includes 8 topics on 4 large perforated posters (you can separate them or not): cubism, post-impressionism, surrealism, realism, romanticism, expressionism, impressionism and baroque. Below each title is a short definition followed by characteristics, influences and artists with a painting next to each. The colors are bright and lovely! Set includes eight 11”x17” posters on card stock. ~Sara

    Fifty fantastic facts for kids of all ages is the complete title of this fact-astic little green book! Why doesn't Mona Lisa have eyebrows? Which painter liked to throw artichokes around? What invention made people assume painting would be replaced altogether? But this book is not about art trivia. You will read about styles, artists, principles, media, movements, see paintings, even try out some techniques yourself. There are loads of thought provoking questions like, "But is it art?" and "Is the artist sending a message?" The artist bios are not the usual either. You learn what tortured their souls. Were they lonely? In love? In pain? At war? You even get into modern street art a bit and what motivates these artists. It is an action packed read, full of quotes from artists and fantastic vocabulary words. You could literally open to any page and learn something new! 8" x 6". ~Sara

    Do you want your picture to be noisy or quiet? Modern artists are known for experimenting, which is what you will do with this book! If you are a non-artsy parent/teacher, fear not. Artsy is not a requirement. Step by step instructions with photos are here to guide you through 36 hands-on art projects. You will be introduced to 18 famous artists, (Monet, Pollock, Picasso, Banksy, Lichtenstein and more) from the 20th and 21st centuries as you explore your own art style. The projects themselves use common art supplies like craft paints (acrylic or tempera), markers, brushes, scissors, glue, cardboard, air dry clay, etc. Cut up photos to make a Cubist portrait; cut out a silhouette of an animal; and tear newspaper to make a graphic face design and lots more!

    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
