How Artists See America: East West South Midwest
by: Colleen Carroll
In How Artists See America, sixteen works of art show the many different ways a selection of great artists, from Winslow Homer and Childe Hassam to Georgia O'Keeffe and Romare Bearden, have perceived the breathtaking variety of landscapes and the diversity of people living in the four major regions of the United States. Author Colleen Carroll's engaging, conversational text is filled with thought-provoking questions and imaginative activities that spark children's natural curiosity both about the subject of the artwork and about the way it was created.

How Artists See - Teacher's Guide
This new "omnibus" edition of the How Artists See Teachers’ Guide contains creative, educational activities for using the How Artists See series in the home and classroom. Each chapter in the new guide covers an individual volume in the series: Animals, America, Artists, Cities, The Elements, Families, Feelings, Heroes, People, Play, The Weather, and Work. Teachers will love the standards-based activities that explore artistic concepts and interdisciplinary themes and reinforce concepts children read about in each volume of How Artists See. For easy lesson planning, each chapter is cross-referenced to the national standards in the main content areas, skills are organized with a scope and sequence chart, and a glossary is provided for easy reference to terminology that appears throughout the guide.
