How to Teach Art to Children: Evan-Moor Book Review

From the publisher: How to Teach Art to Children is designed to increase children’s awareness of the different kinds of art. It gives children a wide range of experiences and helps them to appreciate the art around them. Most importantly, it lets them know that there is no wrong way to do art.

The book breaks the content into four sections:

  1. Materials Lists (mostly items you likely already have at home)
  2. Words to Know (important terminology to know)
  3. Part One (Learning About the Elements of Art)
  4. Part Two (Using the Elements of Art)

First, you’ll learn about the seven elements of art – line, shape, color, value, texture, form, and space. Then, you’ll learn how to use them.

Each page includes an introduction, material list, and clear step-by-step instructions.

You’ll love how simple it is to teach art to children and your children will love the engaging activities!

If the fun activities don’t draw you in (pun intended 😉 ), the bright colorful pages will!

The kids and I had so much fun going through the book and are excited to select their next art project. The texture collage art project looked particularly fun and even reminded us of a previous KidArtLit box we worked on.

How to Teach Art to Children has become our new favorite art book for children and we can’t wait to complete each lesson!
