Description

Encourage an artistic spirit in children with 36 kid-friendly fine art projects in paper, clay, textiles, sculpture, and jewelry. Each project is inspired by the work of a prominent artist and is illustrated with step-by-step color photographs of the process as well as finished samples and variations.
Have fun exploring:
  • paper by making paper bead figures from magazines, pipe cleaners, wooden beads, and other common supplies.
  • clay by creating whimsical pinch pot birds.
  • textiles by making a nature weaving with two branches, various items collected from nature, yarn, string, ribbon, and glue.
  • sculpture by creating a little world featuring miniature plants, animals, and objects under a stemless wineglass.
  • jewelry by making a modern cameo pin from tiny beads, cardstock, felt, pin, and glue.
Colorful photos illustrate how different people using the same lesson will yield different results, exemplifying the way the lesson brings out each artist’s personal style. On-site visitsto the studios of an established potter, metal smith, jeweler, and sculptor illustrate first-hand accounts of their creative process.
