Young students will learn: How do we make shapes out of lines? How do flat shapes become 3D? How do shading and texture make a drawing look more realistic? What is a color wheel? And so much more! Art is a beautiful way to foster creativity in the little ones in your life. Some even say that Art Makes Kids Smarter. When is the last time you stopped to admire the colors on a painting as you walked by? Do you know why those colors pop out at you? Why those colors might even remind you of a summer’s day or a cozy winter evening by a fireplace? The School of Art will take young artists through the basics of color theory, and both you and your little artists will be able to see, talk about, and create art with a whole new perspective. “Part novel, part picture book, part nonfiction guide, this playful hybrid offers a wide-ranging and engaging introduction to core elements that go into the creation of art.”—Publishers Weekly “This interactive scholastic introduction is the next best thing to attending art school.” —School Library Journal Excerpted from The School of Art: Learn How to Make Great Art with 40 Simple Lessons If you like this book, check out these other fun art titles: DIY Dog Portraits Cartooning for Kids: Crazy, Zany Cartoon Characters Enter our BIG HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY!
