Full Description
In How Artists See children learn about the world by looking at art and about art by looking at the world. Each volume presents sixteen diverse works of art devoted to a subject familiar to children through their own experience, organised into four subcategories for better comparison and contrast. Author Colleen Carroll engages readers with open-ended questions about the works, stimulating their thoughts, building their visual literacy and communication skills, and expanding their own artistic imaginations. For children curious to learn more about the artists featured, short biographies are provided at the end of each volume, along with suggestions for further reading and a list of museums where the artists works can be seen.

Handsomely packaged in sturdy slipcased sets, these classic books make ideal gifts for the home and essential resources for the classroom. As teaching tools, they are especially versatile, being readily adaptable to grades K-6 and intersecting with disciplines as various as literature, history, science, and social studies through the many activities detailed in the series Teachers’ Guide (available separately). Whether poring over Matisse’s goldfish, Jacob Lawrence’s Olympic athletes, or Hiroshige’s moonlit cityscapes, readers of How Artists See will delight in discovering how the world can be transformed by great artists’ creativity-and their own.
