Synopsis

Make it Pop! Activities and Adventures in Pop Art by Joyce Raimondo

The Art Explorers[trademark] series offers a new approach to learning art. Rather than emphasise historical information, these books encourage kids to describe and interpret what they see in famous artworks, then try some of the techniques themselves. Each book highlights 5-8 famous artists. For each artist, a colour reproduction of a famous work is paired with exploratory questions. An information blurb explains how the work was made and the artist's intention, emphasising facts of interest to kids. Following are art projects that tie into the artist and his/her techniques. The activities are illustrated with examples of actual children's work.
