Description - How Artists See: Animals by Colleen Carroll

In "How Artists See Animals" children can see how Franz Marc transformed an ordinary cow into a magical one by using brilliant colours; how Roy Lichtenstein created goldfish out of metal; how John James Audubon depicted the elegance of a flamingo in its natural environment; and how Robert Jew made an iguana look so real that it seems about to crawl off its canvas. This text is part of a series of interactive, inquiry-based books designed to teach children about the world by looking at art and about art by looking at the world. Each volume presents 16 diverse works of art, all devoted to a subject that every child already knows from personal experience. Author Colleen Carroll's engaging, conversational text is filled with thought-provoking questions and imaginative activities that spark children's natural curiosity both about the subject of the artwork they are looking at and about the way it was created. This direct, interactive approach to art - and to the world - aims to promote self-exploration, self-discovery, and self-expression. The books introduce basic artistic concepts, styles, and techniques. For children who want to know more about the artists whose works appear in each book, biographies are provided at the end, along with suggestions for further reading and an international list of museums where each artist's works can be seen. As children begin to understand the multitude of ways that artists see, they should deepen their appreciation of art and artists, of the world around them, and of their own unique vision.
