This Artists Workshop series of books is absolutely wonderful! The stories are engaging and educational and our 7-year old loves them, as do we. As for the stories, themselves, she stops us every couple of sentences to comment which shows how fascinated she is. The stories are varied and not only fun for the child, but fun in a nostalgic way for the adult reader. With each story, there are related crafts or projects the child can make: collage, 3D posters, clay, diaramas, paintings, etc. I believe there are half a dozen books in the series and we have 5.

An example from this particularly book, LANDSCAPES, is the "Views of a Volcano" chapter. One page introduces Japan's illustrious artist, Hokusai, who created 36 famous woodcuts of Mount Fuji. It also gives information about Japan's sacred mountain. The following pages focus on creating various art projects centered on mountains. There are step-by-step instruction on creating wood prints, a section that describes how to create a "faux" wood print from various media, another on how to design mountains with tile and ink.

There's another chapter called "Golden Garden" which discusses murals and the famous Austrian artist, Gustav Klimt. Subsequent pages in that chapter instruct children (or adult artists, honestly) on how to create different backgrounds such as "Trees and Flowers," "A Tree of Life," and a "Mosaic Flower Bed" using various media.

We absolutely love this series!!Landscapes (Artists Workshop)
