Overview

With 52 weeks of fantastic art projects using easy-to-find, everyday materials, Art with Anything provides a year of creativity, imagination, and fun for children ages 4-10!

Organized alphabetically by material, each week features one everyday material (address labels, fabric scraps, leaves, rocks) and provides five days of unique activities, increasing in complexity with each day. Art with Anything uses materials like buttons, cardboard, hole-punch dots, junk mail, masking tape, sandpaper, and salt, which encourages recycling and reusing!

Children will love making “Glitter Photo Jars” or working on “Shake-It-Up-Bag Paintings,” and projects like “Family Finger Puppets” and “Fluff-N-Puff Mobiles” will keep them entertained for hours and stretch their imaginations.

Whether at home or at school, in child care or an after-school program, exploring the process of creating art is one of the most compelling ways children learn, and Art with Anything keeps children learning creatively all year long!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Here’s a book that’s bound to keep kids constructively occupied and entertained this summer or the entire year!.." - Good Reads with Ronna, LAParent.com

"This book is a real 'WOW' for anyone seeking art activities for children ages 4-10." - Shuffle Spindle & Dyepot

"This lively compendium of family-friendly art activities [is] highly recommended as a resource for parents...and caretakers." - The Midwest Book Review

Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
Kids who want to make their own masks and costumes for Halloween or adults wondering what to do with youngsters on a rainy day might take a look at these art projects. Included are easy-to-follow instructions for 52 craft projects (and variations) that use everyday materials such as cans, buttons, bottle caps, paper plates and stones. Half the fun for young artists will be searching for the "ingredients" in house and yard. Children might create masks on a stick, stone stack sculptures, sandpaper rubbings, sock puppets, yarn weavings and sponge and foam prints. A great way to encourage kids to (literally) find inspiration around them. Reviewer: Mary Quattlebaum

    Use every day materials for art

    I have five or six of Kohl's books and find them all useful, and have especially enjoyed her great masters books "Discovering Great Artists" and "Great American Artists for Kids". I was delighted to see this newest book in color, but more, to see a progression from easy to challenging. This will help me teach my elementary school class with a progression of skills and accomplishment without giving up their unique individual art expression. I'm very impressed with the 52 weeks of art 5 days a week, and like the 52 choices of materials. I'm looking forward to trying art with duct tape, grocery bags, plastic wrap and sandpaper, to name a few. I really like the plastic wrap art ideas listed, and am sure my classroom will love Plastic Wrapped Paint and Salty Watercolor in Plastic, two of the five choices that week. This is going to be very interesting and exciting to do with children. I look forward to school starting, and we just got out last week!

    From Author, MaryAnn F. Kohl (25th Anniversary)

    What a year! It's my 25th anniversary of bringing art to children through the 23 books I have written. Art with Anything falls into this very special year, and it's a special book! I especially love that it is in full color and the layout is spectacular!

    The art activities in Art with Anything are written for exploration and enjoyment by young artists at home, school, childcare, in after-school programs, or anywhere children have materials to be creative. There are 52 weeks and 5 days per week of projects in the book, plus bonus ideas and all kinds of fun extra ideas. It adds up to something like 300 art ideas. What a volume of fun!

    One thing I especially like about the book is the weekly progression from easy to amazing. Each week focuses on one material, like leaves or cotton balls, offering 5 days in a row of art with that material. Day 1 is introductory and easy, and by Day 5, the kids are ready for a very "fancy" or challenging art experience. Each day builds on the first. After 5 days, the kids are experienced and "know" that material, and are ready to create something that takes more skill and thought. Kids often call Day 5 the "Fancy Art Day"!

    Everyone says, "Which projects to you like the best?" I would have to say I am in love with the Bubble Wrap week, five fun popping and painting experiences to last a full five days. And next I would have to say I really like the beauty of the 5-day-week of Leaves, beginning with a basic leaf print, then a leaf burst, next a watercolor leaf painting idea, a wiggling leaf design, ending with the beautiful melted leaf mobile.

    I hope that everyone will visit my website to see a sample art activity from the book, and check the blog of the Artful Parent for photographs of children creating with yarn from pages 112-113. Beautiful! Come to http://www.brightring.com/. Thank you, MaryAnn Kohl, art author/educator/consultant
