Pictures and Poetry.
Pictures and Poetry unites the wondrous world of art and the beauty
of the written word through the works of famous artists and poets. Works
by twenty-eight world famous artists and poets are presented side by
side in a visually exciting and pleasing graphic layout. The work of
artist Elizabeth Catlett is paired with the poetry patterns of Mary
Ellen Solt; the paintings of Georgia O'Keeffe are presented along
with Chief Dan George's reflections on nature. There are many
suggestions for meaningful, interrelated creative activities as students
discover the connections that link the lives, cultures and ideas of
artists and poets. Elementary teachers will find the book a remarkable
resource for inspired interdisciplinary teaching. Middle school students
will be able to use the book for independent research and project ideas.
