This Book Will Make You An Artist will do exactly that. After a brief introduction covering such subjects as supplies and the color wheel, this books introduces readers to twenty-five artists, including Leonardo da Vinci, Artemisia Gentileschi, Vincent Van Gogh, Henri Matisse, Frida Kahlo, Andy Warhol, Bridget Riley, Liu Bolin, Yayoi Kusama, and Esther Mahlangu.

Ruth Millington gives a brief biography of each artist and a description of his or her style, then provides a fun art project related to that artist. Projects include painting points like Seurat, making cutouts like Matisse, splashing paint like Janet Sobel, and creating a string sculpture like Judith Scott. Millington also includes a glossary with basic art terms.

This book is a wonderful introduction to art history and technique through a variety of mediums. Especially nice, Millington’s choices are very inclusive with a balance of old and new artists, both male and female, and from a variety of countries. This book is perfect for the any budding artist looking for some inspiration.
