Description

The Imbali Artbooks, ‘Adventuring Into Art’ come as an eight-volume boxed set, and serve as a valuable art-teaching resource. They contain many carefully structured and supported artmaking activities, along with information about individual artists from South Africa and further afield. The books provide teachers and students with an accessible, but not simplistic, approach to looking at art and its role and meaning in our everyday lives. They also guide teachers and students through different ways of interpreting, understanding and discussing the work of many dozens of South African artists. A supportive teachers’ guide is included in the set.

These eight books are the culmination of three decades of Imbali’s creative arts teacher and student workshops, as well as extensive research on South African, African and world art. They span a wide range of themes and topics, beginning with an introduction to the elements of art and abstraction, “Getting Started”, then moving on to “Faces”, “Bodies”, “Things”, “Places”, “Warzones” and finally “Inner Worlds”. Moving from the known to the unknown and back again, we have tried to provide teachers, students and art lovers with engaging and relevant content, with a particular focus on South African art, while also encouraging out-of-the-box thinking and the creation of wonderful, innovative and expressive artworks.
