Art Sparks: Draw, Paint, Make, and Get Creative with 53 Amazing Projects!
Artsy parents and kids will appreciate the novelty of the projects in this fabulous idea book! Unique creations take only simple craft supplies to make, and easy instructions with loads of photos for each project will help to guide young artists along the way. Art projects are organized by painting, drawing, paper art, felt & fabric, art & nature and sculpture. The mobiles and felt flowers were especially decorative! Some have a cultural flair like the papier mache alpaca, maori tattoos on a paper-traced arm and kimono dolls from origami paper.
Every kid can be an artist with this book as their guide! Using basic art supplies — from paint, markers, paper, and glue to household finds like cardboard boxes and fabric scraps — children aged 6 and up learn that as long as they can imagine it, they can create it. Curated by two art educators with decades of experience, this rich collection of 53 arts and crafts activities offers up a ton of freeform fun, from Doodlemonsters and Painted Animal Rocks to Paper Bead Jewelry and Nature Weaving. Projects vary in difficulty so there’s something for a wide range of ages and abilities, and many can be completed in under an hour. Each project featured in the book has been kid-made (and kid-approved!), and colorful photos of the finished pieces will ignite a creative spark that inspires budding makers to express their imagination, humor, and individuality through art.
