This book is suitable for ages 7 to 13 years. Sandi Henry introduces children to the seven basic elements of design that will help them to take a piece of art from " That`s Nice" to " Wow! " .

Readers will see examples of how children their own age use elements of design in their work. And they will meet classic masters and contemporary artists whose individual works are based upon these same design techniques. It features: Grid Drawing - using a grid to divide images into smaller parts to reproduce a photograph or painting; Cut-out Collage - using free-form shapes cut from construction paper to create a colourful collage; Texture Rubbing - using the bumps, grooves, lines and other patterns to add interesting visual texture to artwork; Complementary Colour Puzzle - cutting and gluing shapes of complementary colours to create a striking abstract design; and, Supersize It! - Using a papier-mache to create an enlarged version of a common object.… (more)
