The Lovereading4Kids comment

Get into Art! People explores a fascinating array of portraiture artworks from artists as diverse as Leonardo, Suerat, Picasso, Breughel and Munch. Each artwork is paired with an art activity for children to do themselves from the inspiration they gain from the original painting. Susie Brooks has created a brilliantly inspirational new way for young artists of every level to get inspired by art.
