Think inside the box

1st October 2004 at 01:00
Hockney and Hepworth, Rothko and Rego, Matisse and Moore - six of the 20 modern artists to be found in Art In a Box, a stylish and compact introduction to visual creativity for primary pupils. Colourful A5 cards display works in the Tate Modern collection, while on the back there are stimulating questions and observations about technique. These are complemented by another section called Your Turn, in which children are shown how to take a line for a walk like Klee, dribble and splash like Pollock or make a card sculpture in the style of Gabo. Art in a Box by Sarah Richardson costs pound;10 and can be ordered from Tate Publishing, Millbank, London SW1P 4RG
