Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0823025020, Hardcover)

The Art Explorers series offers a new approach to art! Written by experts in the field, it encourages kids to interpret what they see in famous artworks, then try the techniques themselves.
Imagine That!: Activities and Adventures in Surrealism, the first book in the series, draws children into the fantastic, imaginative world of surrealism by highlighting the work of six famous surrealist artists. For each artist, a color reproduction of his or her famous artwork is paired with questions to get kids thinking about what they see. A short paragraph explains the artist's intentions, and a bio gives children a peek at the person behind the art. Easy-to-follow activities then provide hands-on experience with the artist's techniques, subject, and media, each illustrated with examples by actual kids. Techniques include collage, watercolor painting, drip painting, drawing, frottage, watercolor resist painting, printmaking, sculpture, and more.



Features the Following Surrealist Artists:

• Salvador Dali

• René Magritte

• Max Ernst

• Joan Miró

• Meret Oppenheim

• Frida Kahlo






• Launch of new interactive art book series for kids called Art Explorers

• Features big-name artists that are consistent draws for kids and their parents

• Activities have been kid-tested and approved

• From the former family programs coordinator of New York's Museum of Modern Art
