Great Art Lessons for the Creative Soul
Happy Father's Day and Black Music month! We hope your summer is off to a great start. A great place to find creative inspiration this summer is in children's picture books. As we celebrate Father's Day and Black Music Month, we want to highlight one of our favorite picture books entitled, Just the Two of Us, by the mega star, Will Smith.
Will turned this chart topping rap song into a children's book by collaborating with renowned artist/illustrator, Kadir Nelson to depict the lyrics of the song with delightful illustrations. This book is perfect for the month of June and connects Visual Art with ELA, Music, Social Studies and Physical Education.
