Come Look With Me: Art in Early America

By: Randy Osofsky with The Bank Street College of Education

Discover the people and places of Colonial America.

Come Look With Me: Art in Early America introduces children to twelve magnificent works of art. More importantly, it offers both children and adults a whole new way of encountering any work of art, one that engages the imagination as much as the eye.

Children are introduced to a variety of media and styles in American art of the 1700s and 1800s. History comes alive as children examining the design of Samuel McIntire's Gardner-Pingree House inside and out and imagine how it was lit during the day and night; they encounter Black Rock, A Two Kettle (?) Chief in George Catlin's stately painting; they witness the War of 1812 with Thomas Chambers' Capture of the H.R.M. Frigate Macedonian by the U.S. Frigate United States.

Well suited for both individual and classroom use, Art in Early America pairs quality art reproductions with thought-provoking questions, encouraging children to learn through visual exploration and interaction. Thoughtful text introduces the world and work of the artist, making the most of a child's natural curiosity.
