Youngsters enjoy a wonderful creativity that allows them to express themselves joyfully through art. As they get older the urge to create remains, but they may not believe they possess ?real? artistic talent. This Jumbo Book bridges that gap. Art techniques provide the basis for over 200 pages of drawing, painting, sculpture and mixed-media crafting projects, along with itemized material lists and a glossary that will give kids the confidence and freedom to explore!

This is a fabulous book! It has dozens of great projects in the four sections: Drawing (Horizons, Shadows, Still Life); Color (Color Wheel, Painting Techniques, Printmaking); Sculptures (Clay, Fabric, Plaster); & Mixed Media (Costumes, Pinata, Puppets).

The instructions were easy to understand and the materials list at the beginning was perfect. I really enjoyed the "Sketchbook Study" as well.

Wonderful book for teachers, parents or the young at heart wishing to try a variety of different art assignments.
