How we would describe our country in WORDS is also a useful exercise ~ for Americans of all ages. It would be a good classroom project to stimulate thoughtful weighing of what are the most important aspects of Freedom, as well as appreciation for an array of artists and different art forms, not necessarily those that young students are commonly exposed to in school. Three favorites of mine from Raczka"s book are "Cradling Wheat" by Thomas Hart Benton, "Brooklyn Bridge" by Georgia O'Keefe, "Action Party II" by Mark Tansey. The latter, new to me, is a tongue-in-cheek view of artists painting a space shuttle lift-off.
Enjoy the book, then indulge in making choices from your own inner gallery. Have a family discussion; there might be less resistance to visiting museums during your next family vacation, thanks to another Art Adventure with Bob Raczka. And be sure to look up these other titles:
"UNLIKELY PAIRS" (#0761323783); "HERE'S LOOKING AT ME"
(#0761234041); "3-D ABCs" (0822564742).
