Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin R. Harris
Mary Wallace has written nine books for kids about making things. She has a good sense of what kids will respond to and what materials are easy to find and use. An brief introduction about making art and the basic components of artistic expression precedes the first projects, a water color painting, a portrait and a color wheel. There are a total of twelve projects described in detail with photographs and step by step instructions. The choices range from painting, clay modeling, fabric decoration, printmaking and faux stained glass. All instructions are presented in a single two-page spread. The ideal use of the book would be to encourage children to follow her example and experiment, not copy it exactly. Most kids, and especially young ones, will need adult supervision, and many of these projects would make great family activities.

Gr 4 Up--Twelve colorful projects (watercolor, portrait, still life, clay sculpture, pointillism, chalk drawing, mosaic, printmaking, tissue paper suncatcher, collage, batik, and a mini art-gallery diorama) combine both art and craft. Each project is displayed on a double-page spread, with all the materials listed. Clear, step-by-step instructions are included. Basic concepts are illustrated in each project; for example, primary color crayons are used to create a color wheel that is then transformed into a still life. Finally, young artists are encouraged to make a mini-gallery for displaying their creations. A satisfying set of activities for any collection.--Kathryn Kosiorek, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Brooklyn, OH
