We're All Works of Art
There is no single masterpiece in art galleries or with people—we’re all works of art in our own special way!
Our skin tones might all vary;
we're every shade and hue.
Some people think we look surreal,
and frankly, yes, we do!
But we can make you tilt your head,
and see the world anew.
Pairing bright and engaging illustrations with relatable rhymes, this beautiful hardbound book celebrates diversity while teaching kids about different styles of art: from prehistoric cave art to surrealism, cubism, pop art, and contemporary art.
Includes an appendix that provides brief descriptions of different art styles along with mentions of their most significant works and practitioners to encourage further exploration, including:
- the bust of Nefertiti
- Leonardo da Vinci
- Henri Matisse
- Joan Miró
- Rene Magritte
- Roy Lichtenstein
- Pauline Boty
- Rachel Whiteread
- Steve McQueen
