About the book

My Art Book: Animal introduces young children to the history and techniques of art through the delightfully appealing subject of animals. Whether it's make-your-own Egyptian frescoes, cubism collages, or wild animal wire sculptures, this book is full of project ideas to ignite a child's imagination.

Readers will find spreads featuring animal masterpieces by famous artists and sculptors, as well as information about how the artists chose to show the subject and the techniques used. Each artist and masterpiece spread is followed by a gallery spread, sharing related works of art.

"My Art Project" spreads cover a range of artistic styles and animals, and encourage children to experiment with different materials. Step-by-step photography and clear instructions guide them through the process, allowing them to produce results they can display with pride.

My Thoughts

Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to review My Art Book from DK Canada.   This time, I am presenting another book in this series titled My Art Book Animals which essentially will give numerous ideas of art based on animals.

The book will allow your child to develop his/her artistic side with some interesting ideas – from painting resembling to what the Egyptians were doing to creating a sculpture made from wire.   There are definitively a wide variety of projects within this book.  I think one of favorites would be the project reproducing an animal on tin foil.   Very original and definitively not something you would do on a regular basis.  

In each project you will also have a small introduction on a painter using this technique.   Not only will the child have the possibilities to practice by making art but he/she will also learn about artists from the past.    A perfect combination to learning!     This book will skyrocket your child in the world of Art which is essential to develop a part of the brain that often is neglected.

This book would make a great gift for the child in your life who loves art.   It will give him/her wonderful ideas to make in 2013. 

My Art Book Animals is available at your favourite bookstore, even and
