Reviews

Extraordinarily useful and necessary for any class in art history! - Johanna Movassat, San Jose State University A step-by-step guide, incorporating both theory and practice, to critically thinking and writing about art. - Janet Carpenter, City College of San Francisco An extremely useful book for art history students at all levels of study. - Melissa Dabakis, Kenyon College I find the text to be fundamental in teaching students to write. It is concise enough to cover in a course on a particular art historical topic without overtaking the topic itself. It is always my secondary text. - Rebecca Trittel, Savannah College of Art and Design Excellent definitive source on writing about art for the advanced student. - Carey Rote, Texas A & M University-Corpus Christi

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
