Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
One hundred and thirty ideas and instructions for art projects are included in this book. They are arranged by continent of origin, and cover the globe. My favorites are the Sandpaper Printed Cloth from Ghana; Gyotaku art from Japan and the Karensansui mini-garden, also from Japan. The selections are quite diverse, and imaginative. Cities built from milk cartons such as Hippodamos of Greece and double roller painting inspired by the Hungarian brothers who invented the ball point pen are two examples. This collection is well organized, each activity includes a icon indicating the level of experience necessary, the art technique featured and the ease or difficulty in preparing for the activity. The black-and-white illustrations are informative, although not works of art in themselves. A must have for teachers and parents who are looking for a lot of ideas, well packaged in an affordable format.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Arranged in chapters by continent, these crafts will be useful for geography and cultural reports. The authors use a system of symbols to denote which continent is associated with the activity, the level of difficulty, the basic art technique involved, and how easy or difficult the required materials are to procure. Black-and-white line drawings illustrate the process and/or the finished product for each project. Most of the activities are interesting and directly linked to the cultures they represent. Others, like several for Antarctica, seem more contrived. Building a structure of icing and sugar cubes is sure to be a hit with children, but how illustrative is it of the Antarctic environment? Necessarily, not all countries and cultures are included but many are represented by more than one project. While children can use this book, the descriptions (e.g., "Young children create a miniature woodland scene..."), the pervasive use of symbols or icons, and the terse but accurate directions indicate that this book was designed for adults.-Torrie Hodgson, Burlington Public Library, WA

    Arts and Facts...Kids Love 'em

    While writing this book, I discovered some amazing factoids that I knew children would enjoy if transformed into easy art projects they could do with little adult help! For example, did you know that the undersea coral of Figi is some of the most colorful in the entire world? Okay, let's paint a watercolor painting in pinks, purples and yellow like the coral of Figi!Then outline the shapes with a marking pen, and you have an interpretive work of art. Another one? Why, sure! The French perfected fancy perfumed soaps, so let's sculpt soap shapes from left-over scraps of bar soap that is first soaked to soften and then pressed flat and cut with cookie cutters! Kids can learn interesting things from Global Art, but more important, they can be creative while learning. Let's face it: The most important thing about this book !!really!! is that it is easy fun art for kids of all ages.I have never known a child in all my years of teaching and consulting who did not find art to be wonderful, especially open-ended art that supports the premise that the process is far more important than the finished product any day. Now let's construct a full-size imaginative anaconda snake out of an old bedsheet inspired from a real anaconda from Brazil!
