13 Art Techniques Children Should Know

What's the difference between watercolor and gouache, or between a collage and an assemblage? How are frescoes and mosaics made? Why do different kinds of prints look so different from each other? These and other questions are explored in a kid-friendly way in 13 Art Techniques Children Should Know.

Dazzling color reproductions of the world's most recognizable masterpieces provide a door through which children learn about a variety of mediums and their methods of application. Leonardo's sketches are the means of understanding drawing. Works by Holbein and Van Gogh exemplify the vastly different effects that can be achieved with oil paint. Matisse's cut-outs demonstrate what can be accomplished with colored paper and a pair of sharp scissors.

Along the way, children are encouraged to make their own masterpieces using similar techniques.
