Description - Great American Artists for Kids by MaryAnn F. Kohl

75 great American masters are introduced through open-ended quality art activities allowing kids to explore great art styles from colonial times to the present. Each child-tested art activity presents a biography, full color artwork, and techniques covering painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, architecture, and more. Special art options for very young children are included. Many great artists will be familiar names, like Cassatt, Warhol, and O'Keeffe. Other names will be new to some, like Asawa, Smithson, and Magee. Each featured artist has a style that is interesting to children, with a life history that will entertain and inspire them.Sample of some of the artists and companion activities:Andy Warhol - Package DesignBev Doolittle - Camouflage DrawDale Chihuly - Pool SpheresMaya Lin - Memorial PlaqueJasper Johns - Encaustic FlagJoseph Raffael - Shiny DiptychRoy Lichtenstein - Comic SoundsThomas Jefferson - Clay KeystoneEdward Hopper - Wash OverGrant Wood - Gothic Paste-UpWolf Kahn - Layered PastelJackson Pollock - Great Action ArtMary Cassatt - Back-Draw MonoprintLouis Comfort Tiffany - Bright WindowsHans Hofmann - Energetic Color BlocksRube Goldberg - ContraptionGeorgia O'Keeffe - Paint with Distance2009 Moonbeam Children's Bronze Award2009 Benjamin Franklin Award
