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 by Claudia Boldt, Eleanor Meredith 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.
