Meet the Artist: Peter Blake is packed with inspiring activities for budding artists. Children can create their own bold pop art imagery using collage and different paintbrush techniques inspired by Peter Blake—an English pop artist best known for co-creating the album-cover design for the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
The book includes a brief introduction to the artist’s life, followed by a series of activities that explore prominent themes and ideas in Blake’s work. Featuring beautiful reproductions of key artwork and illustrated by a leading contemporary illustrator—the artist’s daughter, Rose Blake—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.
