"Faith Ringgold is known for her paintings, prints, masks, and soft sculptures. These works of art often show her feelings about being an African American woman. Faith's most famous works are her story quilts."
This biography introduces Ringgold in a manner that is fun and interesting to young children. The author's premise is that if children can think of artists as real people, then the world of art will open up to them.
Through his own illustrations and a clever story line, along with reproductions of the artists' works, the author conveys a wealth of information about Ringgold, her time, and her art. Great for reading aloud and discussion. Paperback, 32 pages each. Ages 4+.
