    Loosen Up and Have Some Fun! I¿ve seen and appreciated guerilla

    Loosen Up and Have Some Fun!

    I’ve seen and appreciated guerilla art, but never before did I feel so compelled to partake in this awesome exercise of freedom! This book is filled with fun projects to perform on your own or with your friends. I really appreciate the low-key and refreshing approach of this book – it’s motivating without being forceful or too ‘in your face.’ Keri Smith leads you into the world of guerilla art and opens your mind to why it’s important and revolutionary.

    This is a great gift, especially if you or the recipient needs to loosen up and think outside the box about something. I love for example the superhero exercise for its smart and fun perspective on how guerilla art is an empowering mode of communicating ideas that you value. By following her advice, you will discover that random acts of guerilla-art as kindness help make the change you want to see in the world. This makes me happy, which I think has valuable therapeutic affects on the body.
