Books

Throw yourself into British art with this zany book of activities based on artworks by some of Britain's most exciting artists. Play a game of 'Formaldehyde and Seek' inspired by Damien Hirst; take cues from Barbara Hepworth and carve a sculpture out of soap; and find out how to capture the spectacular glow of J.M.W. Turner's painted sunsets with a torch and some cellophane. There are fascinating facts about the artists dotted throughout the book and when you're ready to take a break from creating, delve into an Op Art maze inspired by Bridget Riley or take your pencil on a Word Walk like Richard Long. The Tate Kids British Art Activity Book explains the key concepts behind historical, modern and contemporary artworks in a succinct and fun way. Art activities and games encourage a deeper understanding of each artist's ideas and introduce children to artworks in a variety of media including photography, mixed media, sculpture, conceptual art, installation art, and painting.
