Summary

 How Artists See is a series of interactive, inquiry-based books designed to teach children the art of observation and increase their visual literacy. Each volume presents eighteen diverse works of art, all devoted to a subject that children know from personal experience. Author Colleen Carroll’s friendly, conversational text is filled with thought-provoking questions that promote exploration, self-expression, and fun. In this revised and redesigned edition of the classic How Artists See Animals, more than half the artworks are newly selected—and they range from contemporary street art to an ancient Greek coin. Children will discover how Andy Warhol’s rhinoceros resembles a prehistoric cave painting, how Frank Gehry turned a fish’s sleek aquatic shape into architecture, and how Georgia O’Keefe captured a bird in flight using just a few curving lines.
