Get Into Art:Animals

Susie Brooks

Art activities and history are combined in this animal themed project book. Thirteen works by famous artists are presented, each masterpiece is shown in a two-page reproduction. Brooks explores one major art technique for each work: Matisse's The Snail is accompanied by a project that uses cut-paper shapes and patterns in nature. The projects vary from beginner level to experienced artist and include works from Degas to Ming pottery. Enjoyable and encouraging, this book allows kids to express themselves and create with various materials. From the author of Get Into Art: People (2013) Ages 7-12
