Synopsis

Draw Paint Print Like the Great Artists by Marion Deuchars

In this imaginative new activity book, Marion Deuchars makes learning about art fun. Young readers are introduced to 18 great artists, then encouraged to try out the techniques that lie behind their greatest works. Short and accessible facts about each artist's life and works are followed by creative projects that Marion has devised based on the artist's particular techniques. Take your pencil for a walk in the spirit of Paul Klee, experiment with colour like Miro or create your own Cubist-inspired artwork.
