Art and How it Works

by Ann Kay

An Introduction to Art for Children

This enticing introduction to art appreciation for children looks at art history, themes in art, and art techniques, from cave paintings to modern art.

Art and How It Works explores the history of art, from prehistoric paintings, Impressionism, and abstract art, through to the art of today. This engaging, colorful book includes biographies of major artists, such as Fra Angelico and David Hockney, and cuts through the jargon that surrounds the art world to offer a fresh and accessible approach for children.

Young readers will begin to notice and explore shapes, colors, patterns, styles, themes, and techniques. By taking a close look at famous paintings and answering the open-ended question prompts dotted throughout the book, kids will discover a new way to see and appreciate the art all around them.
