Award-winning artist and former family programs coordinator at the NYC Museum of Modern Art, author Joyce Raimondo, teaches children grades
For each artist, a full-color reproduction of his or her famous artwork is paired with questions to get kids thinking about what they see. A short paragraph explains the artist's intentions, emphasizing facts kids will find interesting.
Easy-to-follow activities then provide hands-on experience with the artist's techniques, subject, and mediums, each illustrated with work by various child artists. Techniques include drawing, painting, pastels, collage, watercolor resist painting, sponge painting, mask making, printmaking, sculpture, and more.
