This best selling book is co-written by KidsArt’s Kim Solga and MaryAnn Kohl, award-winning author and leader in the field of process-oriented art for children. Discovering Great Artists encourages children to learn by doing, to become familiar with new ideas, and expand their awareness in many different forms of art, from paint and drawing to sculpture, photography, architecture and more. Children will become comfortable with art, will experience art styles and techniques, and open their minds to art appreciation at their own levels.
A brief biography of each artist is included with a fully-illustrated, child-tested art activity, including such great artists as:
- Da Vinci – Invention Art
- Monet – Dabble in Paint
- Picasso – Fractured Friends
- O’Keeffe – Close Up Flowers
- Lichtenstein – Comic Dots
- Kahlo – Special Self-Portrait
…and many more easy, child-centered activities.
