Reviews - What do customers think about CHILD ART WITH EVERYDAY MATERIALS, VOL.1 (The Craft Series)?
Great Projects for All Ages Apr 4, 2007
I love this book and use it regularly in art classrooms from K-12. The suggested projects in the book do not stress the end product, but rather encourage kids to get past their inhibitions (as in "I can't draw," "This is too messy," "Will you do mine?"), and enjoy the creative experience.
At first glance, the projects in the book seem most suited for elementary students, but they can be easily adapted for all age and ability levels. I often use these activities as openers with my high school classes, and sometimes we spend the whole period experimenting and simply "having fun" with the materials or art processes. I find that these no pressure arts activities free the kids to be more creative and imaginative when we get to whatever "real" project I have planned for them.
Additionally, the book is well-written and straightforward, the materials are easy to acquire, and the projects are easy to implement. I love this book for its approachability and simplicity and because it challenges me to think of art and art processes in a new light. I consistently return to this book for ideas and inspiration.
