By Kimberly Boehler Thompson and Diana Standing Loftus. In 19 lessons, students learn about art production, art history, art criticism, and aesthetics. The first five lessons cover ways to talk about and evaluate art, the relationship between art and culture, and principles of design and composition. The remainder of the book focuses on different production methods, ranging from collage and grid drawing to printmaking and papier-mch. Each lesson includes ideas for relating the concepts to other subject areas. Grades 4–8. Suggested readings. Bibliography. Illustrated. 8½" x 11". Good Year. 147 pages. ©1995.
