Review:
It’s a revelation to discover how geometric shapes like rectangles, circles, triangles, hexagons, rhomboids and squares can convey images from nature. A portfolio, consisting of two landscapes and two plants, shows each image in three stages, from realistic drawing to abstraction to a block pattern. A child can superimpose the designated wood shapes on the pattern to recreate the image in blocks, as well as use the lessons to expand her own imagination. But this set will be far more inspiring to a pre-teen or older child with extensive art experience and perhaps career aspirations who is seeking new directions for self-expression.
