0 Reviews
In this fun and accessible book by an award-winning art educator and writer, children are encouraged to see paintings in a whole variety of ways. Look again at the painting of vegetables, for example. Turn it upside down, and there's the face of a gardener with a grinning mushroom mouth (The Vegetable Gardener by Giuseppe Arcimboldo).The paintings, each described with simple text, cover a broad range of periods and include a large number of 20th-century images. Each spread focuses on a different perspective. Children are encouraged to answer questions about the images, then try an art activity of their own.Ages 5-10
