For you illustrators and artists that teach or like makin’ stuff with your own kiddies, Susan Schwake of Art Stream Studios has recently published a new book, Art Lab for Kids. I received a copy recently and it’s amazing!
A bit from the press release:
“Art Lab for Kids will bring out your own creative style and voice with 52 fun, refreshing, and creative art projects that are great for children and set into weekly lessons. The exercises include drawing, painting, printmaking, paper, and mixed media. Such open-ended lessons as these can be explored over and over – with different results each time! Each lesson is inspired by the work of a contemporary artist, including Rebecca Emberley, Lisa Congdon, Megan Bogonovich, Amy Rice, Georgia O’Keefe, Chuck Close, and author, Susan Schwake.
Susan has kindly offered to give away a copy of the book to Illustration Friday readers! Please leave a comment of your own favourite art project as a child and I will randomly select a winner.
The contest ends Friday, March 9 at 5:00 p.m (MST).
