I am not sure I could ever have enough art books. My children are allowed free reign of the art supplies, under the condition they clean up after themselves. I love the creations that come out of having this freedom to create, but I also love teaching them about technique. The only problem is that I am not an artist, so I need curriculum that teaches technique but is still fun!
How do you tell the difference between primaries and intermediate colors? How do you know which colors compliment and which clash? Have you ever wondered why some colors make us feel warm and fuzzy while others make us feel cold? Using Color in Your Art!: Choosing Colors for Impact & Pizzazz (Williamson Kids Can Books) helps parents teach these concepts and more.
Appropriate for ages 9-12 but could be adapted.
Teaches with other children's art but also introduces famous artists work as well.
Doesn't require a ton of "strange" art materials. Just some paint, brushes and paper.
