"An inspiring, practical guide to unleashing your inner artist to make masterpieces in 25 styles."
February 2024 Debut of the Month
Encompassing thousands of years of incredible art history — from prehistoric paintings and ancient Roman mosaics, through to Dali, Kahlo and Jean-Michel Basquiat — This Book Will Make You an Artist is a fiesta of fascinating biographical facts, tips on techniques, and inspirational ideas for creating original art sparked by the works of 25 ground-breaking artists.
Among this book’s many merits is the fact it can be enjoyed by a wide age range of young creatives, with each gorgeously illustrated spread featuring information on the 25 artists, and the style and techniques they were known for. In addition, a “Now it’s your turn!” panel provides step-up-step guidance on how to create your own piece of art in the artists’ respective styles.
Covering cubism, impressionism, surrealism, pointillism, Aboriginal wax-washing, Dadaist poetry performances — and so much more — across Leonardo da Vinci, Katsushika Hokusai, Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Hugo Ball and Andy Warhol (to name but a few), This Book Will Make You an Artist is an absolute joy.
