Thanks to Donors Choose and Amazon, I have finally updated and completed my art room library, at both schools! Now I have books for project inspiration, and more resources for students when they complete their in-class projects! When I collected all the books I had, I totaled 100+, so it was impossible to list them all in one blog post. So for the next few weeks, I will post my list of books in different categories.
My first category will be my list of books about artists, both fiction and non-fiction. The books are for grade levels K-6. Since many of the books are based on an artist, you can easily set up a mini-research project for students to discover who the artist is, what type of work they made, and what the students' favorite art piece is made by that artist.
Due to the length of the post (with so many good books), I will not write a review on each, but you can find all of the books on Amazon, or Google!
I love this series! Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists are books that give a kid-friendly biography about the artists and their work.
Pre-K and Kindergarten
Good Picture Books! Students can see how artists created their versions of the trains, babies, dogs, and horses!
