Let's Make Some Great Art: Colors
Award-winning British illustrator Marion Deuchars has returned with a new addition to her popular Let''s Make Some Great Art activity book series. Focusing on all things colorful, Let's Make Some Great Art: Colors includes all kinds of art activities to engage budding artists.
Learn the basics about colors and put your new skills to test in all sorts of colorful activities, including fingerprint art, drawing, painting, collaging and, of course, coloring.
Art prompts offer a picture that is started for the student to finish. These can be fun for the natural artist or one less confident in their art skills. I liked the variety of the big book (078111): drawing a face with correct proportions, coloring flowers using only oranges/yellows, draw something made of glass on a pedestal. Simple art principles are shown, along with bits about famous artists and art history. The other books offer more focused, yet still open-ended creative opportunities.
