The Artist in You

The Artist in You
Written by Julie Brunelle and Peter Wood
Franklin Watts £12.99
ISBN: 978-1445151694

This book explores both the language and the techniques of art - including drawing, painting and print-making. It takes some of the world's greatest artists and their work as a starting point to inspire young people, and encourage them to create their own masterpieces. Showing various techniques and mediums to motivate the young artist, it also introduces them to the basic terminology used in describing art projects. At the end of the book is an excellent glossary for art students and the photographs and illustrations are of a very high quality. The enthusiasm of the authors, who are both artists and art teachers, definitely shines through to make this an excellent book for students interested in this subject. (10+)
