Stories. Artists' Workshop Series.
King, Penny; Roundhill, Clare
This instructional resource, designed to be used by and with elementary level students, presents six works of art which tell stories. These images, created by master artists from diverse cultures and historic periods, serve as starting points for exploring various artistic techniques. Images include: "The Bayeux Tapestry" (Late 11th Century); "The Ramayana" (Mid 17th Century); "The Willow Pattern" (Thomas Minton?, 1790); "Cinderella" (Arthur Rackham, 1919); "Midsummer Night's Dream" (Marc Chagall, 1939); and "Russian Miniature Box" (Yagodkina, 1992) . Suggestions and instructions are given for creating student art work using a variety of techniques and media. Both master art works and children's art illustrate the text. (MM)
