Paul Cezanne was one of the greatest of the French impressionist painters. This delightful book follows his son, also called Paul, as he travels to the mountains to spend a summer with his father. He discovers that his father, a very large man, paints the natural world with a passion that few can understand. But one day they meet an art dealer in a village who offers to try to sell some of the paintings in Paris ... the rest is history. The reader gains a real insight into Cezanne the man through the eyes of a child - sometimes frightening, fastidious (he won't touch other people), warm-hearted, driven by a passion for his art. And it provides a vivid introduction to Cezanne's work, with reproductions of his most famous paintings incorporated in the illustrations.

GROWING ARTISTS: TEACHING THE ARTS TO YOUNG CHILDREN, 5th Edition, provides early childhood educators with the theoretical framework, current brain research, and background knowledge needed to design creative arts activities for young children from infancy through the primary grades. Beautifully illustrated with children’s artwork, it features a wealth of child-tested dramatic arts, music, dance, and visual art activities that nurture children’s creativity. The creation of a safe, sensory-appealing arts program in which works created by diverse peoples and cultures are valued is emphasized throughout. Focus is also placed on where arts activities are integrated into a developmentally appropriate curriculum. Children’s literature about the arts, and ideas for adapting arts activities for children with special needs, are integrated into each chapter. Chapters cover the creative process; artistic, aesthetic, and sensory development; anti-bias; and community-building arts activities. Emergent curriculum, thematic teaching, the project approach, and art appreciation activities are also included. Examples of teaching in action model how to be an enthusiastic and effective teacher of the arts process. This book provides a rich resource of ideas and approaches that will inspire all those who work with young children to explore the arts process with them.

The twins Meret and Bella love their grandfather, Papa Chagall, and he loves telling them stories. One day, when they visit him in his studio, he tells them about his life – through four different stories, all told during a day they spend together. The first story is about Chagall’s childhood, and how his paintings of purple cows and flying people made his mother smile. She took him to see the teacher at the Art College, who was so amazed by the boy’s work he offered him a free place at the college. The second story tells how Chagall met the twins’ grandmother, Bella, how they fell in love and went to live in Paris, and had a baby – the twins’ mother, Ida. Then comes the sad story of how the Nazis hated the Jews and mocked the paintings of Jewish artists. But Ida persuaded her father and mother to emigrate to America, taking Chagall’s paintings with them. The family were not happy in America, but in the fourth and last story Chagall tells the twins that at last people started to appreciate his art and he became a famous artist – and was able to paint happy paintings again.
