Do you love art books for your kids or do you wish you would have left them at the store?

What kind of art books are your favorite?

My kids like the how to draw.....books. They have one for animals and one that is cartoon characters. They also have a comic book thing.

That's a good one you show, there.

It's funny. I loved art as a child. I buy art  books. I'm planning art appreciation for next year. However, it is the first thing to go by the wayside. I actually enrolled my dd in a homeschool semester class because I kept dumping it as a subject at home! LOL!

I wish I'd have left our art curric on the (virtual) shelf. But we do like the "how to draw..." books and also use books with pictures of paintings in our picture study.

 Im on the fence. Weve done some art books in prek that just showed pictures of paintings and he was not interested at all (dont blame him). I was thinking of doing the art with a purpose artpac 1 book this year. I really dont know. I want him exposed to art, but hes truly not interested right now. Not sure if im going to make him do some now, and than let him decide when hes older...

I get books on art made during the period we are studying in history. I was a Painting and Drawing major. History is reflected in all of the fine arts (music, theatre, film, dance, painting, drawings, scuplture, etc.) its an amazing way for children to learn if you know a bit about it. I'd really say to educate yourself then use what you learn to show your children. People who think art is foolish are generally people who don't understand it. But perhaps I'm a bit biased :D
