A lifelong love of Art is one of the greatest gifts an adult can bestow on a child - and no art is more appealing to children than Impressionism. this book invites children to delight in Cassatt's mothers and children, Renoir's dancing couples, and Guaguin's island scenes; 21 activities explore Monet's quick, shimmering brush strokes, Cezanne's brilliant rectangles of color, Seurat's pointillism, and Degas's sculpture-like circles of dancers. Kids will learn how the artist's friendships sustained them through repeated rejection by the Parisian art world.
