Art Styles Posters: Set 3.

Art Styles Posters: Set 3. Crystal Productions, (800) 255-8629, $49.00.

With its beautiful reproductions of masterworks, reference material for students, and a supplemental teacher's resource guidebook, this third set in the series of informative art styles posters from Crystal Productions is highly recommended for all artrooms, especially upper elementary and older. The 18" x 24" (46 x 61 cm) posters are large enough to be viewed from across the room while sturdy enough to be used by individual students at their desks.

Eight twentieth-century art styles are represented in this set: Regionalism, Abstract Expressionism, Color Field, Pop Art, Op Art, Minimalism, Photo Realism, and Installation Art. Each poster boasts four full-color images of one art style. Text provides quick reference about the style and gives highlights about important features of the selected artwork. Additional artists who are associated with the style are listed, and a timeline across the bottom of each poster marks the style's place in history. The handy teacher's resource guide offers classroom activities, a glossary of important terms, and other references.
