Product Description

The artwork presented in this book is a small representation of a very remarkable effort by African Americans in the United States during the twentieth century. Well suited for both individual and classroom use, Discovering African American Art for Children pairs great works of art with thought-provoking questions. The author leads this visual exploration and interaction. Children are invited to wake up with Romare Bearden's "Morning," to explore and join in important ceremonies as revealed in Clementine Hunter's "Baptism," and to stroll along the busy sidewalk in front of Jacob Lawrence's "Brownstones." They can explore the ideas and the unique struggles of African American artists and their contribution to the culture of the United States.

Publisher's Description

COME LOOK WITH ME: DISCOVERING AFRICAN AMERICAN ART FOR CHILDREN introduces children to twelve magnificent works of art. The artwork presented in this book is a small representation of a very remarkable effort by African Americans in the United States during the twentieth century to portray our developing self-image as citizens who have shaped not only ourselves, but have helped to develop the shape and color of all of our aspirations.

The author, Dr. James Haywood Rolling, Jr., leads this visual exploration and interaction. Children are invited to wake up with Romare Bearden’s Morning, to explore and join in important ceremonies as revealed in Clementine Hunter's Baptism, and to stroll along the busy sidewalk in front of Jacob Lawrence’s Brownstones. They can explore the ideas and the unique struggles of African American artists and their contribution to the culture of the United States.

Well suited for both individual and classroom use, DISCOVERING AFRICAN AMERICAN ART FOR CHILDREN pairs great works of art 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.
