The book expresses the desire of painters, and that is it difficult to express one’s feelings as a painter. The book also created an emotional response for me because I realized that artist attempt to find beauty where there is none. For an activity I would require students to make their own art, and write a few sentences about what they are trying to express through their art. ( )

The story is about the author comparing an artist to God. He goes throughout the story comparing God's work to the lord. For a children's book, its quite complex. I wouldn't recommend it. Just because, its a intense topic. ( )

This is the story of an artists that's wish is to create things as God does. Great way of looking at art though an artist eyes. ( )

This book tells of how an artist is like God. The reason is because like God, an artist wants to make a great creation. ( )
