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.
