Synopsis

What makes good art? Learn the tricks of the trade and tackle the techniques from the greatest artists from around the world with this fun activity-sketch book.



Create your very own dream-like ceiling inspired by Michaelangelo's Sistine Chapel, draw a self-portrait like Picasso, collage like Matisse and understand conceptual art with thought-provoking tasks inspired by Tracey Emin and many more besides. Covering everything from collage to pop art, expressionism to surrealism, this essential activity book will let you step into the shoes of the artists and learn how to master their craft.



With helpful hints, tips and step-by-steps, Make Art with the Greats will help you to build your creative confidence as you explore the world's most famous artists throughout history, from the early Renaissance to the present day. Familiarize yourself with the tricks of the trade by tackling a broad range of creative tasks and get to know the artists with a short biography and low-down on their practice.



As Jackson Pollock once said, 'some artists build things with a brush, some with a shovel, some with a pen.' So, get ready to dabble with different artistic techniques alongside the biggest names in the world . . . and make art with the greats.
