A wonderful book to get children into art. It begins with a real portrait and then gives you a little bit of information about the painting and artist - then you lift a flap and it gives you ideas of how you can create a painting in a similar style.
There are the usual artists featured such as Arcimboldo, Picasso & Lichtenstein and their usual works which most children copy / experiment with at some point but then there are also more unusual ones such as Muybridge, Velazquez and Klimt.

Get Into Art People features twelve famous artists with distinct styles. Each section includes a full page reproduction of the artist’s work with information about the artist and his/her technique. The genius here is a fold out page with an accompanying project that incorporates the artist’s work. The book ends with a glossary and materials list. The book is great for encouraging art appreciation, and for all children interested in arts and crafts.

Famous art depicting people each with a really cool, instructional project and short blurb about the artist.
Great Books
Pick up this book and some art supplies and let the fun begin! Young artists will enjoy learning about famous paintings and creating their own works using similar techniques. 22
Great for upper elementary and middle schoolers as both an introduction to great artists and a springboard for their own creativity.
This has some cute ideas for kids to use to engage with art in a way that could mimic the different artists the book showcases.
