This Book Thinks You’re An Artist
Everyone has some artistic ability, and if that ability is engendered at an early age, many children will make art a much more important part of their lives, either as artists themselves or as those who will appreciate art. This is a fun workbook printed on art paper that will handle all kinds of art materials. It is broken into eight sections: Look, Draw, Color, Pattern, Design, Sculpt, Steal and Offend, and This Book Thinks It’s an Art Studio. Each section has several art projects that will challenge youngsters to try lots of different artistic endeavors and then has a box on each project that discusses why this method might be considered art. The basics, such as line drawing and color wheels and combining colors and perspective, are covered and then built upon. There are lessons in pointillism and pop art and surrealism that will introduce young people to ideas they may never have considered on their own, and that will free their minds to explore and use their own creativity. This is a wonderful compilation of projects that will keep youngsters engaged for days on end and will likely turn a lot of them into budding artists and art lovers.
