Art Making with MoMA, from the educators at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, presents 20 interactive activities that encourage kids (and adults ) to discover how modern and contemporary artists experiment with materials and techniques. Drawing on over 15 years of research and hands-on experience engaging families in multi-sensory programs at MoMA, this colorful activity book provides opportunities for creative exploration and art making at home, in a group or alone, while providing real examples of the tools, techniques, and ideas used by contemporary and modern artists whose works can be found in MoMA's collection. Each project is inspired by a particular artist, movement, or design concept, and features full-color reproductions of artwork from the likes of Diego Rivera, Vassily Kandinsky, Berenice Abbott, and Charles and Ray Eames. Step-by-step instructions, handy tips and open-ended questions encourage kids to think like artists and develop their own techniques and ideas for art making.
