Subject: More Elementary Books to Teach Art (long)

Save this list if you are interetsed in seeing this topic develop on
Incredible Art Department. This is another "old" list I have saved on my
computer (Thanks to Mary Ann Kohl - Getty list member). It will take some
doing to merge it with the previous list. Please reply if this topic
interests you ("Children's Literature Used to Teach Art" - Please - if you reply to the lists - delete all
of the long list of books before you send. Do not go to any trouble to
supply authors now - there may not be enough interest to warrent your time.
