Instructions:

1. Look for books that contain art by the “masters” at garage sales, bargain bookstores,
and thrift stores.
2. Put these books in your classroom library, Art Area, and Dramatic Play Area.
3. When the children look at these books, they will develop an awareness of
color and style and an appreciation of fine art.
4. From time to time, point out various artwork in the books and provide
materials so the children can produce paintings “in that style.” Put out bright
colors for creating “modern” art or provide thin brushes for creating small
details.
