The Lovereading4Kids comment
We love this series of four books - Print It!, Draw It!, Paint It! and Make It! - under the Art Smart umbrella. Each book is wonderfully inspirational with an incredibly clear 'how to' approach. Children aged 5+ will have hours of fun drawing, painting, printing and making giftcards, photo frames, T shirts in fact almost anything you can think of is here in one of the four books. Check out the Contents page for each title by downloading the exclusive extract for each title on Lovereading4kids. Great books for rainy days...
In Paint It! there are 12 inspiring painting projects to try including a self-portrait, monster painting, glowing fish and stencil snowflakes to name just 4.
In Draw It! you'll find plenty of inspiration to draw cool stickers, draw your own postcards and make a stunning leopard spot photo frame and lots more besides.
In Make It! use lots of textiles and make pillowcases, mobiles, puppets and hair bands and that's just for starters.
In Print It! design and produce your own boxes, turn your plimsolls into something unique and print your own T shirts too.
Make It! by Melanie Grimshaw
Unlock the inner artist in young readers with this fantastically creative series. This title helps them to learn how to print, draw, paint and create textiles with imaginative projects that will inspire and delight young artists.
Art Smart presents a fresh, imaginative approach to art, covering four main artistic skills – painting, drawing, printing and textiles. Each book in the Art Smart series, Print It!, Draw It!, Paint It! and Make It! contains 12 original projects to make, using readily available materials. The projects have been carefully chosen to appeal to boys and girls. Each project is graded with a difficulty rating of 1 to 5. A special ‘techniques and materials’ section encourages young artists to try out their own creative ideas while learning valuable practical skills.
