Filled with pop-ups, pullouts, and mobiles, The Art Pack is a completely new way to experience artists' use of color, line, composition, perspective, and optics, as well as a lavishly illustrated introduction to the history of Western art.
With The Art Pack you can:
Examine a three-dimensional model of an artist's studio painted by Vermeer
See for yourself how an artist solves problems of perspective by using a replica of Alberti's veil and a pop-up viewer
Break up light with a camera obscura and a filtered Claude glass
Study the combinations of colors that produce shades and tones, by manipulating a real color wheel
Hear (on audiocassette) why the world considers great paintings masterpieces, and see them reproduced in full color
