The Lively Arts
159 p. : ill. (b&w) ; 20 x 27 cm.
"Art is an expression of something beautiful or significant in a disciplined form. But some art forms require live participation more than others. People can dance, act in play, and read stories or poetry out loud. Here we look at art forms which are active rather than static, tracing their development from the earliest times until the present day as means of communicating ideas, proclaiming beliefs, expressing emotions and satisfying man's need for imaginative fulfillment." -- from Amazon book description
