Come Look With Me
World of Play
Can you come out and play?
Come Look With Me: World of Play is no dry discourse on art history or painting technique. Instead it pairs quality art reproductions with thought-provoking questions, encouraging the child to enter the painting or sculpture and explore it through the artist's eyes, through the eyes of the people depicted, and through the child's own imagination.
Author Gladys S. Blizzard has chosen twelve fascinating works of art which, although diverse, all fall into the most child-friendly of themes, people at play. Works range from an ancient Minano fresco and a classic Winslow Homer to a wacky modern basketball game sculpted by Red Grooms in painted wood.

The "Come Look with Me" series was created by Gladys S. Blizzard, whose experiences as an art teacher and work as a curator of education at Bayly Art Museum at the University of Virginia served as the basis for this educational style.
Mrs. Blizzard's concept for sharing fine art with young people was inspired by her experiences with her own grandchildren. In her lifetime, she gave numerous workshops demonstrating her techniques and the series was included in the Getty Center for Education in the Arts summer seminar for art teachers.
