With 52 weeks of fantastic art projects using easy-to-find, everyday materials, Art with Anything provides a year of creativity, imagination, and fun for children ages 4-10! Organized alphabetically by material, each week features one everyday material like buttons, cardboard, masking tape, and even junk mail, and provides five days of unique activities. Children will love making 'Glitter Photo Jars' or working on 'Shake-It-Up-Bag Paintings,' and projects like 'Family Finger Puppets' and 'Fluff-n-Puff Mobiles' will keep them entertained for hours - and stretch their imaginations. Whether at home or at school, exploring the process of creating art is one of the most compelling ways children learn, and Art with Anything keeps children learning creatively all year long!
MaryAnn F. Kohl is the author of over 20 books about art activities for children. She believes in children creating through exploration rather than copying something an adult has made, or "process not product". Of course children enjoy the products too, but it is the process of discovery and creating that is most important to them. Visit her blog and her website for many free ideas, inspirations, and resources.
MaryAnn is a frequent speaker and workshop leader around the USA, and would enjoy bringing art to your group in your country too. Hands-on art is the best part of the workshop!
