This is such a great enrichment book about art! It covers elements of several different overarching topics--media, elements of composition, techniques, styles, historical eras--in bite-size articles that are easy to understand. Each item is accompanied by a simple illustration. There is also an historical timeline included for context as well as further reading resources at the end. I learned so much from reading this and would definitely add it to a classroom or school library. It's a manageable, accessible way to introduce several key art concepts to elementary kids. Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review!

100 Things to Know about Art is a brilliant little reference book about Art. A variety of the key elements of art styles, techniques, movements and media are covered. A succinct paragraph and an illustrated picture page are included. There is just enough information to keep a child interested, and it is written in an easy to understand style. The historical timeline is very useful and the pointers for further reading resources are excellent. Every classroom library should have a copy. A brilliant little art book.
