6 books that teach art history through hands-on activities

I love colorful picture-book style books that "sneak" in topics of "academic" importance.

Art History through Hands-on Activities

These books provide hands-on projects and activities to correspond with a particular artist and time in history.

Each activity has a bit of background about the artist and period; just enough to whet appetites for further learning.
