Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-5–This title captures the essence of Expressionism with examples of work by renowned artists Munch, van Gogh, Kirchner, Kandinsky, de Kooning, and Pollock; illustrated step-by-step projects; a statement on the genre; a text that stimulates thinking by asking questions; and generous examples of student art. Projects inspired by Kandinsky, for example, include creating an abstract work that conveys emotion with cut-paper shapes and paint. The books strength lies in its organization and attractive, brightly colored presentation of art as self-discovery. Activities promote individuality, while the biographies of the artists highlight their techniques. Lists of materials, kid-friendly instructions, and notes to adults and children are included. An excellent addition to art sections and a helpful teaching aid.–Mary Elam, Forman Elementary School, Plano, TX

From Booklist

Gr. 3-5.^B This third offering in the Art Explorers series focuses on six expressionist painters (Edvard Munch, Vincent van Gogh, Ernest Ludwig Kirchner, Vasily Kandinsky, Willem de Kooning, and Jackson Pollack) and their work. For each artist Raimondo introduces a representative painting, offers an interpretation and a discussion of techniques, and provides two related projects suitable for children, which build on the artists' methods. Projects, ranging from drawing and painting to sculpture and collage, highlight important artistic elements such as mood, lines, color, movement, and shape. The layout is particularly attractive, with crisp, full-color photos and drawings set against brightly colored borders; the text and captions are easy to read. Introduced with a note for adults and appended with short biographies of the artists, this book will be welcomed by teachers, parents, and would-be artists. Kay Weisman

I love these books, it really opens up the teaching mind to cool projects. I am a elemenentary teacher in a small school, and always looking for fun art to teach. This series not only teaches a form of art but about an artist as well. It is amazing what even kindergarteners can do with these ideas. They may not be famous artists yet, but they sure do have fun exploring and expressing themselves.
