Meet the Artist: Alberto Giacometti is packed with inspiring art-based activities for budding young artists, who can create interesting portraits, sculptures, and collage landscapes.
Starting with a brief introduction to the life of Alberto Giacometti (1901–1966), an important Italian sculptor best known for his distinctive elongated figures, the book then offers a series of creative activities that explore prominent themes and ideas in the artist’s work. Featuring beautiful reproductions of actual artworks, and illustrated by a leading contemporary illustrator, this book, like all titles in the Meet the Artist series, encourages children to use art as an avenue for exploring ideas and expressing their own experiences.
