Susie Brooks has put together a fantastic combination of art history and creative projects that will appeal to crafty children as well as students of fine art.

The paintings and artwork that were chosen for this book were great. All kid friendly, but not necessarily used in other art books for kids (I.e. The snail by Matisse, calders crinkly giraffe, the bird by Braque). That alone made this book great. But then the projects that were created to reinforce what was learned about the artwork were just as great! This is a book we will check out of the library often.

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.
