How Artists See Artists: Painter, Actor, Dancer, Musician (How Artists See)
by: Colleen Carroll
In How Artists See Artists, 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. This direct, interactive approach to art--and to the world--promotes self-exploration, self-discovery, and self-expression, as it introduces basic artistic concepts, styles, and techniques, it also provides loads of fun. For children who want to know more about the artists whose works appear in the book, biographies are provided at the end, along with suggestions for further reading and an international list of museums where each artist's works can be seen. As they begin to understand the multitude of ways that artists see, children will deepen their appreciation of art, the world around them, and, most importantly, their own unique visions.

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.
