Reviews
“”Discovering Great Artists” encourages children to know the great artists and their techniques through hands-on experience, to be inspired to read books, to visit museums, and to see the world in a new way. Children will encompass a greater sense of history and art appreciation, and see themselves in a grander scope of time.” ~ MaryAnn Kohl, author and educator “”Discovering Great Artists” offers children the opportunity to explore a variety of artistic mediums including paint, chalk and pencil drawings, sculpture, photography and construction. Artists from the Renaissance to the present time are included, covering artistic styles such as cubism, abstract, cartoon, naturalism, impressionism and folk art. Activities are as diverse as the artists themselves, with Invention Art (Da Vinci), Action Spatter (Pollock), Starry night (Van Gogh), Colour Collage (Matisse) and Comic Dots (Lichtenstein). Instructions are clear and easy to understand. Materials are generally common art supplies easily accessed by teachers and parents.” ~ Susan Whelan, Suite101 “100+ activities teach the styles, works, and techniques of the great masters – Van Gogh, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, and more. 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. Discovering Great Artists is a great value for the money and belongs on every art shelf.” ~ Rainbow Resource “Students study artists from the Middle Ages and Renaissance to present day, and learn a variety of techniques and styles. The publisher, Bright RIng Publishing, provides links to full color examples of artwork by many of the artists that are featured in the book. Highly recommended.” ~ Successful Homeschooling “You have to get this book! It is jam packed full of great ideas – with 140 pages of information on great artists and projects representing them. Each artist’s section has a short biography which is what I have used for our Artist pages in our History Notebook. There are such original and fun projects demonstrating the style and materials used by the Artist of study. There are projects of ink, acrylic paints, watercolors, pastels, collage compositions, clay pieces, and just too much to mention.” ~ Noggins and Nonsense “Hands-on Art for Children in the Styles of the Great Masters 110 amazingly fun and unique art activities for children to experience the styles and techniques of the great masters, from Renaissance to the present. A brief biography of each artist is included with a fully illustrated, child-tested art activity, featuring painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, architecture, and more!” ~ Classical Conversations
