Form Art Books
Forms are the element of Art that give us a 3-D perspective. Instead of a flat image, forms give us multiple sides of a shape at once. Forms can also display light to show the depth, width, height or roundness of an object.
Kid’s art books or even children’s books can inspire creativity and an understanding of the Elements of Art forms.
We love combining Bible and Art in lessons because He is the Master Artist. So the Bible is the first book we recommend for discovering forms.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Each day He spoke items into existence and filled the world with His amazing artwork.
But on day 6, He created man. Actually, the word used means “formed”. He took dust from the ground and formed man like a potter forms clay into shape. Then He breathed into him the breath of life.
That’s something artist cannot do with their art… bring them to live.
But you can read and learn more about forms in art through books.
In the children’s book A Box Story, a simple square is turned into a box that transforms into multiple items through the story.
We’ve linked our favorite children’s books that demonstrate forms through illustrations, stories or both to Amazon. You can read the publisher’s descriptions and customer reviews to find books that catch your interest!
