Synopsis

How Artists See Work , Heroes , Cities , Elements , America , Artists by Colleen Carroll

How Artists See is a breakthrough series of interactive, inquiry-based books designed to teach children about the world by looking at art and about art by looking at the world. Each volume presents sixteen diverse works of art, all devoted to a subject that every child already knows from personal experience. Author Colleen Carroll's engaging, conversational text is filled with thought-provoking questions and imaginative activities that spark children's natural curiosity both about the subject of the artwork they are looking at and about the way it was created.

Reviews

Carrolls series eclipses the competition. How Artists See has the makings of a classic--a core experience for budding art enthusiasts to build on. -- Publishers Weekly
