Art History Lessons for Kids

24Nov11

Claire d’Harcourt’s oversize bright orange children’s book, Art Up Close:  From Ancient to Modern, is a wonderful and interactive way to teach children how to look at art and engage them in the history of art.  Disguised as a Where’s Waldo type game, the book travels through history with 23 full-color reproductions of the world’s greatest masterpieces from Egyptian artists and Arabic calligraphers and miniaturists to Bosch, Veronese, and Watteau, Renoir, Miro, Picasso, and Pollock.  The children are tasked with locating all of the enlarged details in each picture.  Clear descriptions of the artists lives are included at the end of the book, hidden under flaps that also reveal the location of the details.  At the end of the book, a short summary of key periods in the history of art further enhance the learning experience. This delightful book is equally entertaining for children and adults and a must-have for any budding art enthusiast’s library.
