My eldest son and I were delighted when this book 'The School of art' by Wide eyed books was delivered for us to review. It came just in time as we had just entered the third week in the summer holidays lull. So we sat down together one after noon whilst my youngest was napping to enjoy this new book together.
Our first impression of the book was that it was beautifully illustrated with a great choice in colour pallet. My son loved the different professors, especially the one with the pointy beard.
Each Professor in the book takes on a different section of Art theory, they explain their concepts clearly and use excellent graphic tool to illustrate their points. We particularly liked the colour theory section.
One lesson that we did particularly enjoy was the lesson on perspective. We read the lesson and then using photography experimented with the main idea.
My son really enjoyed making the lego man as big as him and has now printed out the picture to have on his wall.
Please note - I was sent this book for free to review, however the opinions are all mine.
