One of the first two volumes in a relaunch of the best-selling series that encourages children to learn about the world by looking at art, and about art by looking at the world

 
How Artists See is a series of interactive, inquiry-based books designed to teach children the art of observation and increase their visual literacy. Each volume presents eighteen diverse works of art, all devoted to a subject that children know from personal experience. Author Colleen Carroll’s friendly, conversational text is filled with thought-provoking questions that promote exploration, self-expression, and fun.
 
In this revised and redesigned edition of the classic How Artists See Families, more than half the artworks are newly selected—and they range from a storytelling quilt to a giant cardboard sculpture. Children will discover how Barbara Hepworth evoked a mother’s love with simple stone shapes, how Kehinde Wiley depicted the strength of sisterhood in a portrait, and how Van Gogh captured the joyous moment of a baby’s first steps.
