I really love books that try to teach children about art and artists. I especially loved this book, which tells a kid-friendly (read: not boring) version of Romare Bearden's life, and how his art was used as the illustrations. This book is a fun and clever way to teach kids about a great American artist! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810945894, Hardcover)

This volume recounts the life of the 20th-century African-American collage artist who used his Southern childhood, New York City, jazz and Paris to influence his bold and meaningful art. Romare Bearden described his way of making art as "putting something over something else". Experimenting with fabric, photographs, coloured papers and other materials, Bearden developed his own style in collage, which is firmly rooted in African-American culture.
