Inspire and share with your child the wonderful world of creativity with Modern Art Adventures. Authors Jill Laidlaw and Maja Pitamic explore the stories behind 18 masterpieces of modern art and use them as inspiration for children to create their own exciting and creative art projects with a diverse range of media. The book is divided by the most significant artistic movements of the past century - Impressionism, Expressionism, Abstract, Illustration, Pop Art and Street art - and each masterpiece is accompanied by the riveting story of its significance and two step-by-step art activities that are inspired by its techniques and visual effects.
