"Women Artists: for Children" is a collection of slides, tapes and life-sized dolls that introduces women in the visual arts to third-, fourth- and fifth-graders. The body of this paper presents the four sets of narratives that accompany the individual slide series; "Women Painters", "Women Fiber Artists", "Women Sculptors", and "Women Printmakers". It also includes a discussion of how and why the project came about, a general introduction to the styles and themes of the artists it presents and a brief analysis of its experimental exposure in the classroom.
