How to Talk to Children about World Art
by Isabelle Glorieux-Desouche
Age Range: 12+
For anyone who wants to help children to understand and love art from different part of the world - Africa, Asia, Oceana and the Americas – this is the perfect guide.
Written especially for people with no art expertise or teaching experience, the book uses everyday language and includes maps to help you see where each of the30 featured work of art comes from. The question and answer format anticipates how children might react to artifacts ranging from a Congolese mask, a Sioux warrior’s tunic or a Javanese puppet.
The explanations also include guidance on what’s most appropriate for what age, from four to fourteen. There are invaluable tips for planning a visit to a museum and a thorough discussion of modern western perceptions of world art and the tricky terminology associated with the subject.
