Learning Through Art
Edited by Marilyn JS Goodman and Natalie K. Lieberman.
This is the first children's book based on the collection of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. It provides a fun way to learn about art and uses art to explore basic subject areas such as math, science, sports, music and social studies. Full-color reproductions of works from the Guggenheim's collection form the basis of 12 sections that are filled with information, exploratory questions, writing and drawing activities, fun facts, and additional projects to do at home. This book is geared toward a wide range of ages. Its pages are specially coated so that writings and drawings made with washable marker will wipe off, allowing each activity to be done again and again. Learning Through Arts is written and designed to engage children in the joys of looking, discovering, questioning and learning.
