Creativity Inside and Out.

Marks-Tarlow. New York: Addison-Wesley, 1996. Illus., 193 pp., paperback, $33.57.

Subtitled "Learning Through Multiple Intelligences" with a forward by Howard Gardner, readers will find this book to be chock-full of stimulating ideas and lessons--most of which are art adaptable. The author, a clinical psychiatrist who had also attended the Rhode island School of Design, presents hundreds of activities, within twenty-seven lessons, designed to enhance creativity. A typical lesson is "Feeling Talk" that explores emotions through a series of six exercises and nine discussion topics that revolve around writing, drama and art, with emphasis on Expressionism and Fauvism, mask-making and cartooning. A brief review of this book cannot begin to describe the numerous teaching ideas and strategies contained in its pages. Recommended for upper grades through high school.
