About this item
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.
