Color by Paul FluxWhat are primary colors? How can artists use color to make things in their pictures "jump out" at you? How can colors be used to show different moods and feelings? You'll find the answers to these questions and more as you read 'How Artists Use: Color.' Learn how artists from the beginning of time to the present day have used color in their work. The books in the 'How Artists Use' series explore the characteristics of color, pattern and texture, line and tone, shape, and perspective. Take a close-up look at these characteristics in works of art by well-known artists. Activities in each book help you use these characteristics in your own work.

Lunch by Denise Fleming (Illustrator)It's time for lunch, and one little mouse isfamished! In fact, he's so hungry that once he starts eating, he can't stop. He sinks his teeth into a crisp whiteturnip, gobbles up someorangecarrots, devours an ear of yellow corn, then tosses back some tendergreen peas. He's full, but this mouse keeps on munching until his bulging belly won't hold another bite. Parents will see their own toddlers in this perky tale, and toddlers won't get enough of the gregarious little mouse. They'll proudly identify the colors of his (and their) favorite foods, and enjoy guessing what fruit or vegetable he'll eat next. Color-savvy readers are sure to spot the rainbow contained in the background pages-- and almost everyone will agree that this is one book about colors that makes the plain old primaries look positively pale!
