My Art Book is a superb introduction for young children to the history and techniques of art. It is a beautiful and inspiring art book that will be loved by children, and their parents! Full of project ideas to fire the imaginations of children, including mosaics inspired by Diego Rivera, figure sculptures inspired by Henry Moore, and aboriginal dreamtime art.

Each art project idea is introduced with spreads about a particular masterpiece or artistic style of famous artists and sculptors throughout history. These Artist and Art-style spreads inform the reader about the artists' inspirations, and zooms up close to look at the details in the work or explains the story or subject matter the artists' have chosen.

My Art Book covers a range of artistic styles, skills, and subjects such as impressionist scenes, watercolor landscapes, and pastel portraits. Children can experiment with art materials from making their own colors just like those used for cave art to creating a large land art sculpture from natural materials. Other projects explore the ideas of abstract art, such as drawing music like Kandinsky or conveying emotion through color like Klee. The step-by-step photography and clear instructions guides the children through the process for producing results that they can display with pride.
