Get into Art Stories explores a fascinating array of pictures that tell stories, from battle scenes to fairy tales to timeless myths, from artists as diverse as Edward Hopper, Matisse, L. S. Lowry and the creators of the Bayeux Tapestry. Each artwork is paired with an art activity for children to do themselves. Art projects are varied, intriguing and clearly explained and will act as a springboard for plenty of artistic experiments. Readers can combine their practical activity and creativity with discovering a wealth of fine art.
