Book Review - Folk Art Fusion: Americana

Folk Art Fusion: Americana

About the Book
Fans of Charles Wysocki, Mary Engelbreit, Grandma Moses, and folk art in general will fall in love with Folk Art Fusion: Americana.

Featuring projects that instruct artists of all skill levels how to draw and paint subjects including quaint homes, pretty patterns, colorful gardens, picturesque farms, beautiful birds, and textured florals, this book features American-themed folk art infused with a modern twist.

Beginning with an overview of what folk art is, followed by introductory topics like color, tools and materials, and drawing and painting techniques, Folk Art Fusion: Americana also includes 16 simple, step-by-step projects done in approachable and popular mediums. Rounding out the book is a gallery of folk-art pieces sure to inspire lovers of all things Americana.

Simultaneously fresh and nostalgic, Folk Art Fusion: Americana draws on America’s rich artistic tradition and heritage and provides a fun, accessible take on creating beloved scenes from the heartland.

My Take on the Book
This was an beautiful book filled with amazing artwork and instructions on how to create similar artwork yourself. My daughters love art and this book was another great one that allowed them to learn while also having fun! The books starts simple enough giving some context to the art form and them building from there giving the reader step-by-step instructions on what to do and how to do it. The book is a great one for any artist!
