Fine Art Adventures: Over 35 Fun and Creative Art Projects Inspired by Classic Masterpieces from Around the World

Author(s): Maja Pitamic; Jill Laidlaw

Children Non Fiction

Classic masterpieces are bold, fascinating, and sometimes shocking--in other words, perfect for creative children who love to be inspired. Fine Art Adventures introduces young artists, ages 6 and up, to key masterpieces and interesting techniques, then lets them loose. Children will: create a Pointillist artwork with paints and a toothbrush, work with plaster to recreate a cave painting, use cardboard and coat hangers to design a mobile sculpture, build a dramatic jungle scene inside an old shoebox, and many more engaging, hands-on projects.


Authors and educators Maja Pitamic and Jill Laidlaw also explore the stories and meanings behind 18 well-known classic masterpieces from art history as inspiration for these kid-tested, exciting, and creative projects. No prior knowledge of art is required--just enthusiasm for the subject and a willingness to discover.
