A wonderful book of drawing exercises, Let’s Make Some Great Art maximizes fun and originality, while painlessly and realistically introducing key ideas about perception. Scientific concepts such as light and shade, transparency and opacity, proximity, distance, and geometry share the pages with brief biographies of Matisse, Calder, Pollack, and other significant child-friendly artists whose styles are explained and encouraged. Award-winning illustrator Marion Deuchars invented this workbook for her own young boys. Ages nine to twelve.
