This series introduces a representative selection of key art, decorative art and design of particular cultures.
It looks at examples as primary examples, explaining how and what we learn about a culture by examining a piece - what does it tell us about the environment the culture is rooted in, and about the needs and pressures these create?
It also explores the materials and resources the culture's environment has to offer and how the various patterns of daily life, the history, technology, ideas and beliefs determine and are reflected in the arts and crafts.
Each book: - supports Key Stage 3 Art curriculum and provides a great resource for Key Stage 3 and 4. - includes excellent photographs and illustrations
