The Usborne Art Treasury

Dickens, Rosie. 2007. The Usborne Art Treasury. Tulsa, OK: EDC.
ISBN: 978079451452-5

Featuring a famous work by each of 22 different artists, this book is a fantastic resource for summer reading, art-themed projects! The artists include van Gogh, Monet, Degas and others, including an unknown African mask artist. Featured styles include paintings, collage art, woodblock prints, sculptures, masks and more. Each work of art is featured in a photo and accompanied by a description of the piece, biographical information on the artist, technical information about the piece, and a great project to do in the artist's style using simple items like cotton balls, plastic forks, etc. I will be using this book a LOT!
