Jackson Pollock (Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists) Reviews
Mike Venezia's books for composers and artists are wonderful. We use them in our homeschool art/music curriculum. Colorful pictures depicting the artists' work and work of other artists who were their inspirations. There are also a few cartoon drawings depicting funny stories about the artists' life.
These are great biographies - filled with silly cartoons, real artwork images and an easily approachable biography that kids can relate easily with. I have found other curriculums that use these books as the "reading" source and I'm really pleased with these books. I love that my kids are learning about the works greatest artist.
I purchased many of these books in the series for my grand-daughter who is 8. This way she can learn about many different types of art and the life stories behind the artists. She especially enjoys the little cartoons that give the series a hint of humor. Perfect for children young and old, many interesting facts.....very well written. I want her to learn that there is no right or wrong way to draw or paint.......each person has their own unique style. She herself, is very talented and I hope this series will broden her appreciation for the artists and their works. We hope to visit some of the originals in galleries some day.
We bought a couple of these for our 8-year-old nephew who has an interest in art for his birthday on a recommendation from a friend. His mom said he loved them & continues to read them.
Nice little book for children to be introduced to the arts.
Got for my 10yr old who loves art. Written to relate on kids level with lots of factual information. He really enjoys it.
Venezia is a master at making subjects that might not interest younger children interesting to them and to yourself. You might even learn a little bit yourself. Top rating.
was a bit more used than expected but worked for our purpose
