Summary, etc.:
"Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of full color images, this family-oriented art resource introduces children to more than 50 great artists and their work, with corresponding activities and explorations that inspire artistic development, focused looking, and creative writing. This treasure trove of artwork from the National Gallery of Art includes, among others, works by Raphael, Rembrandt, Georgia O'Keeffe, Henri Matisse, Chuck Close, Jacob Lawrence, Pablo Picasso, and Alexander Calder, representing a wide range of artistic styles and techniques. Written by museum educators with decades of hands-on experience in both art-making activities and making art relatable to children, the activities include sculpting a clay figure inspired by Edgar Degas; drawing an object from touch alone, inspired by Joan Miro's experience as an art student; painting a double-sided portrait with one side reflecting physical traits and the other side personality traits, inspired by Leonardo da Vinci's Ginevra de' Benci; and creating a story based on a Mary Cassatt painting. Educators, homeschoolers, and families alike will find their creativity sparked by this art extravaganza"-- Provided by publisher.
"For the past eleven years the National Gallery has issued a family quarterly that included an "Inside Scoop" featuring artists and works from the museum. This book is a collection of those "Scoops"--Updated, revised, and expanded. The book is grouped around seven general themes and highlights works from different time periods to encourage comparisons among them. We hope the book will inspire children to explore and develop "an eye for art.""-- Provided by publisher.
