Fun Friday**See Update at the bottom of page……….a comment by the author of the book I mention below**
For my FUN FRIDAY post I want to highlight a book that I purchased to use for Art Appreciation and Art Lessons.
Discovering Great Artist…..Hands On Art for Children in the styles of the Great Masters by MaryAnn F. Kohl andKim Solga
HERE are the customer reviews from Amazon
Featuring more than 150 activities, this guide teaches the styles, works, and techniques of the great masters—Van Gogh, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, and more.–Amazon.com
It would be an even better book if the pictures were in color and if they offered several examples of the artist original works. Though I do love the book for what it does offer. Which is an outstanding list of famous artist, a little information about each artist and an activity to do that is inspired by the artist.
** During today’s Fun Friday we will be working on our Handicraft/ Life Skills Photography challange along with doing the activity that is in the above book on Andy Warhol. **
Please share your fun educational ideas, activities, tips, etc. Thank You!!Be Blessed, Angie Update: Thank you so much for featuring “Discovering Great Artists” on your blog. As the author of the book, I’m very grateful for your stamp of approval! Kids love the projects in this book…I always have fun with kids in various schools when I use projects from this book. Always a good creative time for all. Please tell your readers that my website has a full color “click” for each artist directly to one of their masterpieces online. Also, my newest book, “Great AMERICAN Artists for Kids” is in full color. (Though most educational activity books are not in color, I decided to step up and start doing color from now on. I’m a single person publisher, so it’s a big step!) Thank you again for caring about creativity for children.
