"A must-have for adults who want their children to love and understand art, this guide provides valuable tips for making your visit to a museum or gallery with children a success. It anticipates how kids might react to paintings by artists as diverse as Kandinsky, Hopper, Picasso, Van Gogh, and Turner and then gives you the tools to have a meaningful discussion about what they see. It doesn't matter if you only know a little about painting or if you are more interested in sports or sciences; if you trust your own eyes, you can help children "enter" a picture and feel comfortable in the world it depicts. You will learn how to help impatient ones express their intuition and how to stimulate their imagination as well as their analytical mind. Sample questions and answers about 30 artworks from the Renaissance to the 21st century provide historical background, explain genres such as still life and portrait, and demystify religious and mythological themes. This new edition features all new paintings along with labeled sections for easy reference according to the age of your child (5-7 years, 8-10 years, 11-13+ years). Full-color reproductions of all the paintings invite study at home either before or after a museum visit."--Provided by publisher.

Examining 30 paintings by great artists, from 1500 to the present day, in galleries around the world, this book gives examples of the kinds of questions a child might ask about the paintings such as; 'Who are the people in this painting?' 'Why has the artist used those colours?' 'How did the artist choose what to paint?' And provides straightforward answers. Demystifying art appreciation, this book reveals that the simplest questions can be among the most pertinent. There is plenty that will stimulate children's interest in art - and enlighten grown-ups too.

Winner of the Randolph Caldecott Medal and the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award Jean-Michel Basquiat and his unique, collage-style paintings rocketed to fame in the 1980s as a cultural phenomenon unlike anything the art world had ever seen. But before that, he was a little boy who saw art everywhere: in poetry books and museums, in games and in the words that we speak, and in the pulsing energy of New York City. Now, award-winning illustrator Javaka Steptoe's vivid text and bold artwork echoing Basquiat's own introduce young readers to the powerful message that art doesn't always have to be neat or clean--and definitely not inside the lines--to be beautiful.

"What’s going on in this picture?" With this one question and a carefully chosen work of art, teachers can start their students down a path toward deeper learning and other skills now encouraged by the Common Core State Standards. The Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) teaching method has been successfully implemented in schools, districts, and cultural institutions nationwide, including bilingual schools in California, West Orange Public Schools in New Jersey, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. It provides for open-ended yet highly structured discussions of visual art, and significantly increases students’ critical thinking, language, and literacy skills along the way. Philip Yenawine, former education director of New York’s Museum of Modern Art and cocreator of the VTS curriculum, writes engagingly about his years of experience with elementary school students in the classroom. He reveals how VTS was developed and demonstrates how teachers are using art—as well as poems, primary documents, and other visual artifacts—to increase a variety of skills, including writing, listening, and speaking, across a range of subjects. The book shows how VTS can be easily and effectively integrated into elementary classroom lessons in just ten hours of a school year to create learner-centered environments where students at all levels are involved in rich, absorbing discussions.
