Come Look With Me
The Artist at Work
"I always try my best to put all my energy into my work, for my greatest desire is to make beautiful things."
—Vincent van Gogh
Well suited for both individual and classroom use, The Artist at Work 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.
Children imagine themselves within the vast landscape of Albert Bierstadt's The Oregon Trail, they are challenged to pose their own bodies like that of a ballerina in Edgar Degas' Dancer Lacing Her Ballet Slipper; they can make up a story about William Michael Harnett's intensely realistic The Old Violin.
