This new book in the 13 Series introduces young readers to a variety of important art techniques, explained through some of the world's most recognizable masterpieces. What's the difference between watercolour and gouache, or between a collage and an assemblage? How are frescoes and mosaics made? Why do prints look so different from each other? These questions and others are explored through major works of art in dazzling colour reproductions. Children will learn about drawing through cave paintings and Leonardo's sketches, understand how Holbein and Van Gogh used oil paints to vastly different effect, and discover what Matisse accomplished with coloured paper and a pair of sharp scissors. Along the way they will be encouraged to make their own masterpieces using similar techniques. AUTHOR: Angela Wenzel is a museum educator at the Kunstsammlungen Nordrhein-Westfalen. She has authored works in the field of museum education, as well as numerous art books for children. ILLUSTRATIONS: 60 colour illustrations
