This visually striking book represents the art curriculum at the Gilbert, AZ, Elementary School System. The 17 projects are presented in a clear and organized manner. Each activity suggests the appropriate age range; the art concepts that it encompasses; style and/or the artist being introduced; a materials list; a definition of terms; and photographic, step-by-step instructions. Abstract cityscapes, fantasy space art, Paul Klee landscapes, texture in nature, and African masks are just a few of the concepts explored. All projects include samples completed by students in the representative age group. This is a wonderful example of an art curriculum that not only teaches young people the concepts of art, but also allows them to use their own creativity. A great addition for all libraries and art curriculums.–G. Alyssa Parkinson, Highland Township Library, MI
