A rich and colorful concept book that introduces the seven basic elements of art

Using simply a piece of paper and colored pencils, artist and teacher Kathy Mallat introduces the seven basic elements of art to budding young artists. Bruce McMillan's crisp, bright photographs capture the colors, lines, shapes, forms, shades, patterns, and textures as they are added to the picture one by one. Accompanied by a cumulative text, the emerging drawing builds to a clever surprise that will delight young readers.

"An instructive and joyful way to acquaint children with basic art terms and to introduce the idea of parts combining into a whole. A top-notch combination of text and graphics; great for classroom use and for art teachers". -- Booklist (starred review)
