An Arty New Book
"Art and Max" by David Wiesner has just arrived at the library. This unusual book is geared more towards older children as through its clever story and AMAZING illustrations it brings up an interesting conversation about the nature of art. We all know that kids love to create and what they create doesn't always have to be representational. "Art and Max" celebrates the exuberance and messiness of children's art. As Picasso once famously stated, "It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child".
