Introduce children ages 7 and up to more than 50 great artists and their work with this lively family-oriented art resource.

This treasure trove from the National Gallery of Art features works of art by, among others, Raphael, Rembrandt, Georgia O'Keeffe, Henri Matisse, Chuck Close, Jacob Lawrence, Pablo Picasso, and Alexander Calder, representing a wide array of artistic styles and techniques.

Each chapter is focused on a theme ranging from studying nature and observing everyday life to breaking traditions and telling stories and includes works from a broad spectrum of artists, art mediums, nationalities, and time periods.

Forty fun activities throughout will inspire the artist and art appreciator in every child. Written by museum educators with decades of hands-on experience helping children connect with art and the lives of artists, the projects include molding a clay figure inspired by Edgar Degas's sculptures; drawing an object from touch alone, inspired by Joan Miro's experience as an art student; painting a double-sided portrait reflecting physical traits and personality traits, inspired by Leonardo da Vinci's Ginevra de' Benci; and creating a story based on a Mary Cassatt painting.

Educators, homeschoolers, and families alike will find their creativity sparked by this beautiful gathering of art and information from the nation's stellar collection.
