An Eye for Art

Focusing on Great Artists and Their Work

Introduce children to more than 50 great artists and their work with An Eye for Art, a lively family-oriented art resource. This treasure trove from the National Gallery of Art features work by, among others, Raphael, Rembrandt, Georgia O'Keeffe, Henri Matisse, Chuck Close, Jacob Lawrence, Pablo Picasso, and Alexander Calder.

Each chapter is focused on a theme ranging from studying nature and observing everyday life to breaking traditions and telling stories. All include creations from a broad spectrum of artists, nationalities, and time periods, covering a wide array of artistic styles and techniques.

Written by museum educators with decades of hands-on experience helping children connect with art and the lives of artists, the book contains 40 fun activities to inspire the artist in every child.

Projects include:

  • Molding a clay figure inspired by Edgar Degas's sculptures
  • Creating a story based on a Mary Cassatt painting
  • Drawing an object from touch alone, inspired by Joan Miró's experience as an art student
  • Painting a double-sided portrait reflecting physical traits and personality traits, inspired by Leonardo da Vinci's Ginevra de' Benci
