Art Textbooks

Whitman's art text books the principal dug up for me... published in 1987 but the artwork inside is still good.

These books have pretty good art examples in them, they solve the problem of me not having a large personal art library of examples to show kids when discussing the elements of art.  So I can keep sets of 5 in my art closet and bust them out in class when we need to look for good examples of, say, the use of line or warm colors or shape, and then I don’t need to find and store 8 jillion posters. Plus, if teachers wanted to extend art lessons they could use the textbooks as a jumping off point.
