Ages 1 and Up. You’re never too young to learn to appreciate art! One of Bob Raczka’s many children’s books about art, “Art Is…” uses photographs of famous art to go with a simple rhythmic definition of what art is: “Art is a ceiling. Art is a wall. Art is a frame holding nothing at all. Art is an island surrounded by pink. Art is how artists get you think.” The book ends with notes on each piece of art featured, which is good for adults and older child readers. Recommended for art non-fiction or picture book collections in public and elementary school libraries. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0761318321, Paperback)

When you think of art, do you think of painting and sculpture? Bob Raczka shows us that even these traditional artistic mediums can be created in untraditional ways. Art can also be draped, chiseled, pasted and drizzled. But unusual approaches to painting and sculpture are only the beginning. We learn that art comes in many forms - a wall or a ceiling, a lamp or a rug, a goblet or a musical instrument. Simple rhyming verse pairs beautifully with reproductions of twenty-seven works of art, ranging from 17,000-year-old cave paintings to some very interesting contemporary creations. Each piece is as unique as the artist themselves, and each is included here to expand our notions of what art is.
