Synopsis

The author's aim is to help those working with children to develop in them a knowledge of and enthusiasm for fine art by telling stories that connect to a particular kind of art or artist. Art in Story focuses on art of the ancient world, of the East and Africa, of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Chapters consider the European Masters, Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, art of America and Mexico, and computer art. This revision of the bestselling book, Art in Story, published by Linnett Professional Publications in 1997, is aimed at teachers, parents home-schooling their children, and parents and grandparents of young elementary-age children. It would also be an excellent supplementary textbook for arts education methods classes.
