How to be an Art Rebel | Author: Ben Street
Under the playful guidance of Leo, an art rebel cat with a cause, this book takes young readers on an alternative tour of an art museum to discover eight different types of art: portraits, surrealism, ancient sculpture, abstract art, naked people in art, still-life paintings, and contemporary art.
Instead of telling children what they ought to know, Leo equips readers with enough knowledge to respond to art on their own terms. Knowing how symbols work, they'll decipher clues in Frida Kahlo's self-portrait. Understanding surrealism, they'll decide for themselves what Joan Mir 's doodles are all about. And with some insight into the stories behind classical sculptures, they'll discover that antiquity wasn't as gray and boring as it might seem. Along the way, they'll learn about a diverse range of artists from around the world and art movements throughout history.
With its bold and irreverent approach, How to Be an Art Rebel is the perfect demonstration that art is way more fun than adults make it sound.
