Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
It is always a disappointment to find an art book, especially one for kids, that is illustrated with black-and-white line art. Color is so important. There are over 150 art experiences described in this book. The most interesting are the more advanced projects making three-dimensional objects. Wire figures are made with heavy gauge wire. Human figures are made with paper and brads for joints. Papier-mGchT abstract sculptures stand on blocks of Styrofoam. A three dimensional map is constructed with salt dough. Bending and squeezing aluminum foil is a great way to build figures or other objects. Newspaper can be wadded up and held in shape with masking tape to create unique and expressive sculptures. Each project has a symbol code that lets the reader know if adult supervision is necessary, how long it will take, and its level of complexity. Not too exciting from a visual point of view, but there are some creative ideas and projects to be found in this collection. 2005, Gryphon House, Ages 6 to 12.
