Art Camp: 52 Art Projects for Kids to Explore (Kids Art)

We rated this book:


Most kids, given the chance, really enjoy making art. Give them the materials and some instruction, and turn them loose. Before you know it, you will have lots of wonderful things to hang on the walls and decorate your shelves. This little book has all the instructions kids will need to get busy, mostly on their own, to make fifty-two fun, artsy projects. Most of these can be created with materials found around the house or yard. Every spread in the main part of the book has a full-page photograph of the finished project, many with the artist, and the facing page has written instructions with four photos showing the process. Author Susan Schwake includes a materials list that covers all fifty-two projects. She also has recipes for a thick paint she calls paste paint, and a simple air-dry clay that can be painted after it is sculpted and dried. Kids will really have a great time bringing their own artistic ideas to such projects has Junk Drawer Sculpture or Colorful Beads or Thumbprint Garden. In addition, there is a section showing real artists who work in ways similar to those found in the book.
