Get into Art! Animals explores a fascinating array of animal artworks from artists as diverse as Degas, Matisse and Braque. Susie Brooks has come up with a brilliant new way for active young artists aged 7+ of all abilities, as she pairs up an art activity for children to do themselves alongside a famous painting from which they can gain their inspiration.
