Synopsis

Tate Kids British Art Activity Book by Sharna Jackson

Throw yourself into British art with this zany book of activities based on artworks by some of Britain's most exciting artists. Play a game of 'Formaldehyde and Seek' inspired by Damien Hirst; take cues from Barbara Hepworth and carve a sculpture out of soap; and find out how to capture the spectacular glow of J.M.W. Turner's painted sunsets with a torch and some cellophane. There are fascinating facts about the artists dotted throughout the book and when you're ready to take a break from creating, delve into an Op Art maze inspired by Bridget Riley or take your pencil on a Word Walk like Richard Long. The Tate Kids British Art Activity Book explains the key concepts behind historical, modern and contemporary artworks in a succinct and fun way. Art activities and games encourage a deeper understanding of each artist's ideas and introduce children to artworks in a variety of media including photography, mixed media, sculpture, conceptual art, installation art, and painting.
