The Art RoomBook - 2002
This richly illustrated story-poem celebrates the experience of learning to paint in the presence of a master teacher. Set in the 1900s when artist Emily Carr (1871#150;1945) was teaching art to children, The Art Room highlights Carr's passion for painting the natural world and the sense of freedom she inspired in her students. Emily Carr's work has been exhibited with, and frequently compared to, the art of Georgia O'Keeffe and Frida Kahlo. Pascal Milelli's illustrations are a perfect foil to the work Carr created.
