How to Talk toMoreThe first childrens art book for grown-ups. In everyday language this handy little book shows how to explain to children what to look for and how to enjoy paintings as diverse as a Renaissance religious scene and a Jackson Pollock. How to Talk to Children about Art examines thirty paintings by great artists, from the early Renaissance to the present day, in galleries around the world. The book gives examples of the kinds of questions a child might ask about the paintings, and provides straightforward answers. Who are the people in this painting? Why has the artist used those colours? How did the artist choose what to paint? The book demystifies art appreciation and reveals that the simplest questions can be among the most pertinent. There is plenty that will stimulate childrens interest in art and enlighten grown-ups too.
