Can dressing up be art? How do you paint feeling? How do you make an Alberto Giacometti? Can you paint a noise? Why did Jeff Koons make a giant sculpture from 70,000 plants?
This book explores the choices and attitudes of thirty different artists. It helps stimulate children's own creativity and imagination by asking them to wonder why artists create things in the way that they do. It explores the various ideas, meanings, roles and functions of art by looking at outstanding examples from centuries of painting, sculpture and photography.
Simple, clear and fun, this book is an ideal tool for teachers and parents, as well as a perfect introduction to all those approaching art for the first time.
