The Elements of Art are the artist’s guide to creativity: line, shape, color, texture, space, value & form. We use them everyday in everything we do and it’s never to early for children to take notice! The Elephants of Art is the first in a fun series of educational art stories that introduce young kids to these basics and art history as well. This entertaining story will capture different levels of interest for children ages 2 and up.
In Jo O’Mara’s first book we meet Little Toulouse, a tiny but talented mouse named after French artist Toulouse-Lautrec (Too-loose LeTrek.) When his art teacher encourages him to get to know the Elements of Art, the confused mouse searches for Elephants instead. Little Toulouse travels through bold colorful pages to meet Linus, the elephant of line, Starla, the elephant of shape and Rainbow, the elephant of color. They teach Toulouse about each of these elements, but more importantly, they show him what great artwork he can make when he uses them together.
