This is one of a series of books on modern art created to help very young people learn the basic vocabulary used by artists, a sort of ABC of art. Parents and teachers play a key role in this learning process, encouraging careful thoughtful, looking. This book isolates lines to show how they are used by artists and how they contribute to meaning in art. By looking at lines and discussing what thoughts and feelings they convey, adults encourage children to develop creative thinking skills. At the back of this book, there is more information about the pictures included to help in this engaging process.
