Global Art: Activities, Projects, and Inventions from Around the World.
Kohl, MaryAnn F.; Potter, Jean
This activity book contains over 130 art ideas from around the world, combining the fun and creativity of art with the mysteries of history, the lure of geography, and the diversity of the cultures of the world. These projects allow children to explore the world through art with a process, not a product, approach to artistic outcome; the process of exploring and creating is most important for the young artist. Icons appear in the upper corner of each page to assist the young artist and the supervising adult in project selection. The icons suggest experience level, art techniques, and planning and preparation. The projects, inventions, and activities in the book have been organized by country or cultural group of origin. Chapters in the book are: (1) "Africa"; (2) "Antarctica"; (3) "Asia"; (4) "Europe"; (5) "North America"; (6) "Oceania (Australia and the South Pacific)"; and (7) "South America." (BT)
