Reviews - What do customers think about Picture the World: Children's Art around the Globe?
Outstanding Look at Children's Art Nov 30, 2002
Who said children can't be artists? This book demonstrates the delightful variety of children's art around the world. But more, it is sociology, in which the art is placed in the cultural context in which it was made. How different are the artistic expressions from children across the globe. It sets the bar for future publications relating to children's art. We loved this book, as a reference, as an interesting coffee table book, as a compact study of diversity and commonality.
What the world needs now... May 23, 2002
Through the imaginations and dreams of children around the world, Tracy Spates has helped articulate the real promise of globalization--not an ecomonic or cultural amalgamation, but the truth and beauty of children making art: a wonderful diversity of myths and individual visions, the unique play of techniques and cultural icons in a world of rapidly converging imagery. This book teaches. This book celebrates. This book heals. "Children's Art Around the Globe" belongs in every household and, more importantly, in every classroom in the world.
