A refreshing source of ideas for creating fine art with children, Art Lab for Kids encourages the development of every young artist's own voice, marks, and style.
This fun and creative book features 52 fine art projects set into weekly lessons, beginning with drawing, moving through painting and printmaking, and then building to paper collage and mixed media. Each lesson features and relates to the work and style of a contemporary artist — Lisa Congdon, Megan Bogonovich, and Amy Rice to name just a few.
The labs can be used as singular projects or build up to a year of hands-on fine art experiences. Lessons are open-ended enough to explore over and over again — with different results each time! Colorful photos illustrate how different people using the same lesson have yielded different results, exemplifying the way they can evoke personal style.
Art Lab for Kids is the perfect book for creative families, friends, and community groups, as well as both new and experienced art teachers. These engaging exercises are sure to be enjoyed by children of all ages and experience levels.
