About this product
- DescriptionBold and experimental art activities and for children who love to draw outside of the linesModern Art Adventures introduces young artists to groundbreaking masterpieces and fresh techniques, then lets them loose to create their own works of art. Authors and educators Maja Pitamic and Jill Laidlaw explore the stories and meanings behind 18 well-kwn works of modern art including Frida Kahlo s Self-portrait with Small Monkey, Edvard Munch s The Scream, Jackson Pollock s Lavender Mist, and Banksy s Flower giving readers inspiration for these kid-tested, exciting, and creative projects. Children create two artworks based on the techniques and visual effects of the each featured piece of art and the projects cover a wide range of media, from tissue paper mosaics to stencils to comic cut-outs, with a variety of difficulty levels, always encouraging and expanding the child s natural creative abilities. No prior kwledge of modern art is required, just enthusiasm for the subject and a willingness to discover.
