Gr 3–6—Learning new techniques can elevate an artist's aesthetic and inspire new work. Readers will learn and practice new ways to use art materials via step-by-step text instructions accompanied by photos, including extreme close-ups that clearly show how the art tool is implemented. Easily executable exercises (five per book) allow readers to practice the skill they've just learned. Finished works are not too professional-looking, keeping the art goals attainable. Introductory material offers useful information about what our art supplies are made of, including variations (wax colored pencils vs. oil, compressed charcoal vs. vine charcoal).
VERDICT This series gives readers the tools they can use to make new and better art.
