    One thought on “Art Fundamentals: Theory and Practice”

    1. Great reference book for art students and anybody interested in art and its appreciation. After reading this book, I have a better understanding of the fundamentals of art. In turn, I feel able to discern works of art, that I may no be particularly fond of, and appreciate them. It also clarifies art movements’ historic significance in relationship to art/design/culture today, without stuffy explanations or jaded examples. The layout is clean and easy to read and the illustrations are relevant [...]

    2. Copyright 1998. I've kept this book near my art stuff for years, thinking I'll use it as a reference, since it really is a good look at the fundamentals. I need reminders of fundamentals. This book is a portable, readable size, whereas most art history books tend to be doorstops. Mostly full-color interior, lovely margins and white space, and good font size. Note to self: look up a more recent version.

    3. This is the book they apparently HAVE to sell you if you walk into the kcad bookstore and say anything along the lines of, "I'm a Kendall Freshmen."This is also the book that steers most Kendall Sophmores away from buying college text books.This and the history books.And those useless ass books the "art education" program makes their students buy.

    4. A great source to understand art! I highly recommend it for art students/ people who are interested in how to read a piece of art and to know what to see exactly in a painting/sculpture.cThe sad thing is that I borrowed the book from my university library so I can't go back to it whenever I need something.I think its a kind of a book that you should keep in your own library.

    5. I had to buy this book for college for my general art studio classes. I still use it today in my own classrooms to teach Middle School and High School students the "fundamentals" of understanding art basics and theory / history.
