An art project and activity book aimed at helping children and adults improve their basic understanding of art, this reference stresses art elements and principles, which in turn promote observation and discovery on a daily basis. Ideal for anyone wanting to bring meaningful, rich, and fun art experiences into children's lives, this work is stocked with 65 artsy activities for the home, park, city, or even museum. Projects include going on a photographic scavenger hunt in search of forms and shapes, writing an imaginary autobiography based solely on a museum portrait, and making a sand casting on a trip to the beach. The projects, which are accessible and require only free or inexpensive materials, are accompanied by a helpful index that categorizes projects by elements and principles.
‘Just add water (and a little paper, some crayons and pencils) for instant and inspiring art projects.’
