The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is a children's art book for grown-ups to share with their children. A wonderful guide it offers a series of talking points - according to three age ranges - about 30 famous paintings by great artists, from the early Renaissance to the present day, in galleries around the world. The three age ranges are 5+, 8+ and 11+ with interesting talking points for each on every painting. It is a must-have for anyone who wants their children to understand and love art. The book demystifies art appreciation and reveals that the simplest questions can be among the most pertinent. There is plenty that will stimulate children's interest in art and enlighten grown-ups too.
From the same author why not check out its Modern Art companion.
How to Talk to Children About Art by Francoise Barbe-Gall
In everyday language it shows how to explain to children what to look for and how to enjoy paintings as diverse as a Renaissance religious scene and a Jackson Pollock. How to Talk to Children about Art examines 30 paintings. The book gives examples of the kinds of questions a child might ask about the paintings, and provides straightforward answers. 'Who are the people in this painting?' 'Why has the artist used those colours?' 'How did the artist choose what to paint?'
