My Big Art Show: A Card Game + Book
This set of cards and its accompanying book form a lively art-exhibition game for children aged eight and over. Each card reproduces one of fifty major works of art by Michelangelo, Velázquez, Degas, Van Gogh, Kandinsky, Dalí, Warhol and others.As well as key information, such as artist and date, the cards also use symbols and colours to indicate which Movement and Theme the work represents. There are twelve Movements: Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassicism, Romanticism, Realism, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Expressionism, Cubism, Futurism, Surrealism and Pop Art, and six Themes; People, Places, Objects, Animals, Story and Religion.
With My Big Art Show you will become familiar with great art works and movements from the last five centuries, and be able to recognize the styles and themes that paintings share. The aim is to be the first to ‘put on a show’ (i.e. collect three and four of a kind). The book supports the game by providing further information on the artworks and artists, answers to questions on the cards and alternative games to play.
