This new edition of the hugely successful 'Art in a Box' is an ideal way of introducing children to the world of art and encouraging them to use their own artistic creativity.
Art in a Box: Ideal for children's entertainment at home or as a resource for teachers in the classroom. Each card features a full colour image of an art work with activity notes on the back. The notes encourage children to notice details about the art work, and then gives them clear instructions on how to make their own work of art in a similar vein.
Sarah is an artist, a teacher and an educational consultant and is a visiting lecturer at Goldsmith's College and the Institute of Education. Drawing on her extensive experience in the classroom she has developed 'Art in a Box' as a tool to inspire children about art and to get them making their own.
Time Line: This timeline was originally commissioned as an installation on the concourse wall at Tate Modern, providing a glance at the highlights of twentieth century art.
The handwriting, by Sara Fanelli, was designed to reflect the dynamic nature of twentieth century art history, rather than something set in stone. Nonetheless, the timeline gives a useful road map to the major movements and important artists of the period.
20 colour A5 cards.
