    MaryAnn Kohl, author comments

    Good for you! You are to be complimented on giving your child the opportunity to explore these wild and crazy art projects. I suggest having some 'art clothes' instead of just an apron...shoes, shirt, jeans, sometimes even some gloves. Doing this kind of art lets your kids sense art on a grander, more exciting scale. I have never met a child who didn't love these projects -- evey single one of them. So, I guess that makes me a child too! I love them all! Especially sock slaps: Fill socks with sand, tie off, dip in paint, and then slap on the paper. What fun!

    Words from the author

    This book has been out in the hands of good teachers/parents/child care folks/kids for awhile now, but I've found that it is new to many kids who are just discovering it. One little guy I worked with recently as a visiting author to his school told me: "I didn't know a tennis ball could be so interesting, did you?" He was referring to painting with tennis balls. Our group tried several approches with painty tennis balls....rolling them around in a wading pool covered with paper, tossing them at a wall of paper outdoors, holding and pressing on paper, bouncing on paper on the floor, and a few other ideas that kids thought up that are NOT in the book, but should have been. Read on: The little guy who told me tennis balls are interesting had thought up a idea where he rolled the ball deliberately through paint and then along the border of large paper. Within the border, he made dot-prints with different colors of paint. When it was dry, he outlined each dot with a black marker. The result was a huge bubbly design painting. I was impressed with his process, and the resulting painting was delightful and all his own! I love when my books give kids a boost to be their own artists and live in their own creativity. What a great day spending time with kid-artists. Someday I'll collect all their unique ideas and write a new book called "Kids Are More Artistic Than I Am!" Keep having fun with kids, from your friend, MaryAnn Please visit my website for free art ideas: www.brightring.com.
