ART LAB FOR KIDS
L O O K : It's Art Lab For Kids, a book by (my friend) Susan Schwake. Honestly (and I'm not just saying this because I'm in it, as that's usually a negative), this is a *great* art instruction book -- not only for kids but for everyone. Like the best cookbooks, Susan breaks things down into their component parts and steps in an easygoing, fully illustrated manner, while the 'lab' aspect is the fun/experimental part! Most of all, what you come away with is a sense that art is just something that we all can (and should) do.
