Art History for young art lovers

This short non-fiction title is geared toward a child who is beginning to express interest in learning about art history. The basic concepts and techniques of impressionism are briefly described and introduced in this volume. Examples of impressionist paintings are reproduced and very much add to the book’s appeal. The young reader is then invited to paint her own work of art. I found this to be a good introduction but hoped for a bit more depth. A good volume for a school’s library.
