Synopsis

People by Philip Yenawine

This is one of a series of books on modern art created to help very young people learn the basic vocabulary used by artists, a sort of ABC of art. This book explores how people are depicted by artists and how they help to convey meaning in art. By looking at the people portrayed in this book and discussing their various characteristics, adults encourage children to develop creative thinking skills. Notes at the back of each book provide brief background information that adults will find useful when talking with children about the images reproduced in these books.
