SEARY, Michael. Children Making Art. (Halifax, N.S.: Michael Seary, 2003). Printed by Gaspereau Press. Pp -90,(6). Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated buff-coloured card covers, French flaps. "It was four o'clock on the second day of the annual Art Gallery of Nova Scotia's Children's Festival. Having listened to the folk singer, watched the artists-in-the-gallery paint, and helped their daughter make plasticine landscapes, the young family with their toddler walked slowly toward the table where we were drawing panoramic dioramas on folded paper. The father said, 'Maybe it's time to start for home.' The mother agreed, 'It's been a long day.' By then their daughter had climbed up on a chair, grabbed a crayon and insisted 'I want to draw.' This is a book about children making art. Michael Seary is an art teacher and writer living in Halifax who has loved to make art since he attended the Saturday morning classes at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto long ago. These stories distil the experiences of a new generation of children who have learned art in a museum setting." - from the back cover. A few small marginal rust marks from previously installed paper-clips, else very good. Signed and inscribed by Seary on the title page. 16.00
