Children can enjoy their favorite storybook illustrators in a new way by imitating their art with the 100 engaging and simple art projects included in this celebration of children's book illustrators. Featured are famous and award-winning storybook illustrators from the 1930s to present--Good Night Moon's Clement Hurd, Corduroy's Don Freeman, Olivia's Ian Falconer, and more--along with biographical information, open-ended art projects, and portraits created by grade school children. Illustration techniques covered include painting, drawing, cutting and collage, and construction and crafts. Art projects include imitating Jackson Pollock in the "Jackson Piglet Wall Painting" from Olivia and creating a "Photo Story" from children's photos similar to Sugaring Time.
