From Pragmatic Mom: Picture Books About Strong, Independent Female Artists
My daughter is going to art school and so today I dedicate this post to her and her future classmates celebrating strong, independent female artists!
P.S. She won The Newton Art Association Scholarship and didn’t tell us she entered.
Picture Books About Strong, Independent Female Artists
Maya Lin: Artist-Architect of Light and Lines by Jeanne Walker Harvey, illustrated by Dow Phumiruk
As a child, Maya Lin loved to study the spaces around her. She explored the forest in her backyard, observing woodland creatures, and used her house as a model to build tiny towns out of paper and scraps. The daughter of a clay artist and a poet, Maya grew up with art and learned to think with her hands as well as her mind.
From her first experiments with light and lines to the height of her success nationwide, this is the story of an inspiring American artist: the visionary artist-architect who designed the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. [picture book biography, ages 4 and up]
