Colors by Philip Yenawine

Book Description

This is one of a series of books on modern art created to help very young people learn the basic vocabulary used by artists, a sort of ABC of art. This book isolates colours to show how they are used by artists and how they contribute to meaning in art. By looking at colours and discussing what thoughts and feelings they suggest, adults encourage children to develop creative thinking skills. Notes at the back of each book provide brief background information that adults will find useful when talking with children about the images reproduced in these books.
