As a Primary school teacher this book is a fabulous resource. It's packed with ideas and skills that can be used not only in Art lessons but also to enhance lessons across the curriculum. It is very comprehensive and beautifully presented.

I purchased this book for my 9 year old son. I was looking for a book that was more than a 'How to sketch' book, well I wasn't disappointed, this book is definitely more that that, its totally brilliant. When you sit and flick through the pages you feel like you want to start to create some of the projects yourself, lots of projects using different art materials, with plenty of hints, tips and techniques, explanations of materials etc. You cannot fail to be impressed by this book weather you are a budding or an accomplished artist, you'll be hard pressed find another 287 pages of creativity for the money...Right now where are my paints, scissors, cardboard?..........

I am a primary school teacher and the school Art Club teacher. I can honestly say this book has been fantastic. I use it every week and children and colleagues love to look through it for ideas. I would really recommend it. Don't waste time trawling the internet for ideas any longer, sit down with your coffee and have a browse through. I am sure you will be inspired!
A plus point: The language is relatively kid friendly, I even get the children to read the instructions sometimes before we begin and we also use the pictures in the book as a reference point before adapting it to suit if we wish.

When I started to look at these Usborne art books on Amazon it was difficult to decide which one to get. After purchasing a few of them as gifts I have realised that this one combines three of the other books: "Art Ideas", "Art Skills" and "Art Projects". All the books are excellent, but getting three in one is great value too.

The book is packed with lots of fun projects which are all broken down into stages. I have completed several projects with my 5 year old daughter, although she has needed quite a lot of help. There are a wide range of projects, some of which require more advanced skills in drawing and painting so this book would also be suitable for much older children.

I gave this book four stars because I only skimmed through it before deciding it was suitable for an eleven year old who is going for an art scholarship. According to her family, I should have given it five. She loved it and they loved it because it kept her fully absorbed for the duration of Christmas - no mean feat! I studied art myself and wish this book had been available to me. In fact, I almost kept it because, despite my seventy three years, I still love to learn and this book could teach me so much. It is a treasure trove of information, full of colour, inspiration and exercises all wrapped up in a high quality hard cover which will stand the test of time and usage for many years to come. Your kids will enjoy; you enjoy!

Purchased this book, so I can get some good ideas of arts & crafts I can do with my daughter. It's excellent, jam packed with easy to do art ideas.

Love the way the different skills are broken down into easy steps and the pictures show you how the finished work should look!
Have used a number of the ideas in an after school art club and the children are able to complete the activities in a relatively short period of time. They love what we have done so far and I'm looking forward to trying our different skills in the coming weeks
