Synopsis

Anholt's Artists Activity Book by Laurence Anholt

For more than 20 years, the Anholt's Artists series has become one of the most loved and successful introductions to great art, in dozens of languages around the world. Now Laurence Anholt has created an ART ACTIVITY BOOK unlike any other. Here are 7 fantastic projects for children taught by great masters like Monet and Degas. With this book you will be able to paint a portrait with Vincent van Gogh, make a funky junk sculpture with Picasso or let Matisse show you how to make cool colourful cut-outs. In the easy-to-use format, you will also find numerous tips and secrets, which will help to develop creative confidence. There is nothing more fun than making art, says Laurence. It's amazing what kids can create and my book will show you how.

Reviews

A very valuable text ... Useful for all children who wish to improve their art skills and knowledge. School Librarian 'It should be welcomed by all who engage in the creative process with children and who wish to introduce them to art history and to the spirit of creativity ... This book should be on the bookshelf of all Montessori nurseries and schools working with children from four years onwards.

About the Author

Laurence Anholt

Laurence Anholt has written over seventy books, many in collaboration with his wife Catherine. They are both highly regarded in the UK and abroad as a successful author/illustrator team, and have had their books translated into many different languages. They met as undergraduates at Falmouth School of Art, and went on to achieve Master’s Degrees from the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal College respectively. The books which they have collaborated on are based firmly within their own family’s experiences, and many of Catherine’s illustrations depict scenes which families will recognise. It is this element which has helped to make their books so successful. Laurence also writes and illustrates his own books, and has written books with other illustrators, notably the Seriously Silly Stories, a topsy turvy series based on traditional tales but with a wonderful new twist. These were hilariously illustrated by Arthur Robins. In this series, Snow White and the Seven Aliens was awarded The Smarties Book Prize, and was shortlisted for the Federation of Children’s Book Groups Children’s Book Award and the Experian Big Three Book Prize. Daft Jack and the Beanstack was on the Sheffield Book Award shortlist and Ghostyshocks and the Three Scares was Pick of the Year for the Children’s Book Award. Laurence writes for a wide range of ages and is one of the most popular authors of today. Catherine and Laurence Anholt live in Lyme Regis with their three children.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
