Each volume in this innovative best-selling series, with over 200,000 in print, is devoted to a subject that every child already knows from personal experience. In How Artists See Heroes sixteen works of art show the many different ways a selection of great artists have perceived and expressed the diversity and variety of heroes throughout the ages. Here are Michelangelo's David, Liberty Leading the People by Eugene Delacroix, Moonwalk by Andy Warhol, and an award-winning photograph of Mohammed Ali by Neil Liefer to name a few examples. Author Colleen Carroll's engaging, conversational text is filled with thought-provoking questions and imaginative activities that spark children's natural curiosity both about the subject of the artwork and about the way it was created.This direct, interactive approach to art - and to the world - promotes self-exploration, self-discovery, and self-expression. As it introduces basic artistic concepts, styles, and techniques, it also provides loads of fun. For children who want to know more about the artists whose works appear in the book, biographies are provided at the end, along with suggestions for further reading and an international list of museums where each artist's works can be seen. As they begin to understand the multitude of ways that artists see, children will deepen their appreciation of art, the world around them, and, most importantly, their own unique visions.
