A Year in Art
The Activity Book
Now available in a new edition, this unique book allows kids to interactively explore the world’s great masterpieces through games, puzzles, coloring, and other activities.
What better way to learn about art than to create your own masterpiece alongside another, find hidden details that add to an understanding of the artwork, read fascinating stories about how the work came to be created, or take an entertaining quiz that leads to a deeper appreciation of techniques and themes. This beautifully designed activity book introduces children to many of the world’s greatest artworks—ranging from African masks and Japanese prints to European paintings and modern art. Handson projects are sure to spark children’s imaginations while imparting important knowledge that will serve them well as they grow older. The book is perfect for all kinds of drawing and the exquisite reproductions will impress kids of all ages. Whether used at home or in a classroom, this engaging and enriching book will delight children, their parents, and teachers with its endless opportunities to create and learn about art.
