Hardcover(Library Binding)



Do you see pictures when you look at the world around you? Maybe you've doodled birds or sketched flowers. Can you see yourself spending your life tracking nature as a curious artist--like Chiura Obata? Chiura started to draw the world around him as a young boy in Japan. When he came to the United States, he found the incredible beauty of California and Yosemite National Park. But he also met with discrimination because of his Japanese heritage. Chiura didn't give in to the obstacles he faced. In fact, he shared his vision of natural wonders with hundreds of students, friends, and admirers.

Follow Chiura's story as he works to picture magnificent animals and plants. Along the way, you'll pick up a few tips on making nature art of your own, whether you're a beginner or an experienced painter.
