Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Just add color!

For anyone who loves creativity and contemporary art, or who simply loves the joy of coloring, comes Outside the Lines, a striking collection of illustrations from more than 100 creative masterminds, including animators, cartoonists, fine artists, graphic artists, illustrators, musicians, outsider artists, photographers, street artists, and video game artists. With contributions from Keith Haring, AIKO, Shepard Fairey, Exene Cervenka, Keita Takahashi, Jen Corace, Ryan McGinness, and more, Outside the Lines features edgy and imaginative pieces ready for you to add your own special touch.

Review:

"In the spirit of Marcel Duchamp, Deuchars invites readers to integrate their own drawings into images loosely extrapolated from the work and style of famous artists (briefly profiled throughout), and to use these images as a foundation for further exploration. Following a capsule introduction to Louise Bourgeois, best known for her 'Maman' spider sculptures, are instructions for creating blown-ink spiders using straws; a brief bio of Magritte is joined by exercises that encourage unexpected, out-of-the-box thinking. The profiles are intelligently paired with various experiments involving color and technique, while helping readers understand what it means to think, see, and create like an artist. Ages 9 — 12. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

In this interactive coloring and activity book, Marion Deuchars takes the broad canvas of art and fills it with drawings and activities that engage with what art can be, how it can be made, what it can mean for you and what it has meant for people through the ages. Aimed at children aged eight and older, the emphasis is on fun and making the creation of art an integral part of the way you express yourself.
