Today I wanted to share Art Lab for Kids: 52 Creative Adventures in Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Paper, and Mixed Media-For Budding Artists of All Ages by Susan Schwake. I bought this book over a month ago and my guys love it, especially my 8 year old.
He was so excited to get it and look through it, that he placed little tab markers on all the projects he wanted to try first.
He’s been busy making art. We’ve done 2-3 project per week so far. He is very good at keeping up on a mission, if he loves it enough, and he plans to get through as many projects as he can. Below is some string art he did.
He also did some oil pastel/watercolor art below(left) and watercolors with salt (right). He’s done several other project too.
He gives this book 2 thumbs up, but I love it because it got him so interested and excited about making art. The book has simple, yet wonderful ideas in an easy to follow format, perfect for kiddos of any age. Each project has great visual and written instructions. We are very much looking forward to Susan’s next book: 3D Art Lab for Kids which comes out in October and Art Lab for Little Kids, which is out now!
