It teaches children the use of lines and shape in art. It also has a section on color and color theory. Even older elementary aged children find the sections interesting and fun.
There are a few blackline masters in the book that are great resources for teaching the concepts. Each concept has a list of materials and step by step instructions and that makes it very easy to use.
This book is a must have for art teachers, homeschoolers and parents who want more art instruction for their younger children.
Overall, this is a nice resource for the classroom teacher.
A few of the projects are kind of boring to me, but my younger students enjoyed them nonetheless. Most of the them are better suited for early finishers or substitute lessons, rather than an in-depth art lesson. However, I wish I could find more books that were this colorful and easy to read.
I found this book most useful during my first year teaching art- I taught in an inner city school that did not have an art program in place. I was surprised that even 5th graders couldn't use scissors or fold a piece of paper in half. I had to go back to the basics, and this book was very helpful. Now that my students are much more advanced, I don't use it as much. It's great to have in the classroom library though... the students love to read it and look at the pictures when they finish early. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in teaching the basic elements of art.
This book does not teach the technical skills of drawing or painting. It is designed to teach the building blocks of art. It will help a child think more about how artists use these elements to draw the eye in to a work of art, and will help them as they create their own pieces. A very good book!

This isn't a "teaching" guide at all. It merely is a project book. Yes it encompasses the elements in a hands on manner but that is all. Read morePublished 5 months ago by latisha_24
