Think and Make Like an Artist: Art Activities for Creative Kids (Paperback)
An engaging activity book that gives primary school children a way into how contemporary artists think and create by way of fun ideas for making their own art
Think and Make Like an Artist is an art activity book that encourages sophisticated thinking and gives budding artists a chance to develop their imaginations in a whimsical, colorful, and fun package. Children learn to experiment with different materials and ideas, make their own creative decisions, and produce their own unique artworks by way of engaging projects inspired by the work of eight contemporary artists working in media as diverse as painting, sculpture, collage, illustration, costume design, collaborative works, and architecture.
The creative process is brought to life by the author and illustrator’s energetic approach, which includes clever visual prompts and suggestions, specially commissioned comic strips, and more. Projects are clear and manageable but never prescriptive, putting the young artist in control. Whether engrossed in making their own superhero cape, underwater city, or collage series, children who love art or haven’t yet discovered that they love it will be thrilled with this intelligent and innovative activity book. Illustrated in color throughout.
The authors address the history of each technique, provide an example of a contemporary piece of art, and then offer an example of a project that readers can create. The instructions leave room for experimentation, and suggested materials are easy to find, often incorporating everyday household objects. The layout is inviting, with text in a simple black font against crisp white pages, allowing the brightness of the illustrations and photos to pop. This is an inspiring introduction to the concept of art as a vehicle to comment on or question the world. The projects encourage collaboration and tactile experimentation through a wide variety of bold and fun activities that are simple enough for children to explore on their own. VERDICT Great for teachers, libraries, and budding makers looking for fresh and colorful hands-on activities.—Jessica Cline, New York Public Library
