Synopsis

Art School by Mick Manning, Brita Granstrom

Between the pages of Art School you'll find a complete art course! Created by Mick Manning when he was the Head of Illustration at the world-famous Glasgow School of Art, it gives you the feel of real art student projects, helping you create still lifes, self-portraits, sculptures, even your own paper and your first printed book!

Reviews

Some of the creativity exercises, such as drawing in the dark the sounds that you can hear, are lovely and innovative. The projects are presented simply and concisely, but each one can be an inspirational starting point for a bigger project, or skimmed over if it doesn't suit the class. I can see points where the projects will link to other subjects such as Maths and Geography, but there are no specified links. It's a very adaptable book and I recommend it. www.writeaway.org.uk Crammed with ideas and tips, I can't wait to get started too! Also look for Science School, Drama School and Nature School and banish those play stations forever! Blackbird Pie A busy book filled to the brim with tips and ideas for how to bring your arts and crafts projects alive. Time Out
