Do you know of any art teachers or parents that want to introduce their kids or students to art and art history?

 

While searching for great art material for kids, I found this blog: http://www.notimeforflashcards.com/2012/10/picture-books-about-art.html

The blog had an article called: 21 PICTURE BOOKS ABOUT ART

 This article reviews art and art history books for younger audiences. These books integrate some of the following topics related to art:

  • great art that integrates art history into story lines that are created for a younger audience

  • These book inspire kids to want to create art and appreciate art history

  • Some of the books are about kids visiting art museums

Here are a few of the art books they recommend reading to your kids.

  1. Action Jackson by Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan

  2. Celebrity Cat: With Paintings from Art Galleries Around the World by Meredith Hooper

  3. Katie Meets The Impressionists by James Mayhew

  4. In the Garden with Van Gogh by Julie Merberg and Suzanne Bober

  5. Babar’s Museum of Art by Laurent de Brunhoff

  6. The Alphabet with NorthWest Coast Native Art  by Ryan Cranmer

I am looking forward to going to the library and looking for some of these books. Then creating art projects to go  with some of these books to be used as supplemental lessons for the book readings.  When I finish a few lessons,  I will post them on this site – so please follow us at artcubs.wordpress.com.

I would love to see your kids’ art projects and thoughts on this topic as well.

Thank you for reading this blog. Please follow us at artcub.wordpress.com for more amazing art ideas and help share the  gift of art.
