The Lovereading4Kids comment
Full of practical ideas and easy-to-follow suggestions for creating accomplished art projects, this book take works by leading artists as inspiration. So, Jennifer McCully describes Jackson Pollock’s huge, paint-spattered canvases and shows how you can use his technique and approach to make a stylish place mat; she demonstrates how you can follow Frieda Kahlo’s example and create a colourful self-portrait that will reflect your own personality and interests. There’s even instructions on how to copy Banksy and create a stencil image that could make a point about something you really care about it. It’s a clever way of making children think about the purpose of art, that also gives them practical insight into the creation of it and introduces them to the work of the great artists. ~ Andrea Reece
