Unplugged project - paint

The theme for this weeks Unplugged Project was paint.

This inspired us to get on and look at a book which we have had for a couple of years but haven't really looked at properly till now. It's called The Story of Painting by Abigail Wheatley ISBN 9780746076965







The chapters include Cave Painting to Classical, The Middle Ages, The Renaissance, High Drama and Quiet Lives, Revolution, Modern Times and a timeline.

It is quite heavily illustrated with very appealing colourful pictures throughout. Having said that it still contains masses of information and I would estimate it to be most suitable for the 7 to 11 sort of age range.

I can't say more than that right now as we have just read one chapter, but so far so good!

This looks like a wonderful book! Thanks for sharing it with us. There aren't a lot of good art history books for that age range. Thanks!
