Review

Praise forMess
Messis incredible andoffers a fun and safe form of stress relief through destruction.It s damn liberating. Wanders in Whim
Keri Smith s books encourage freehand art exploration and teach artists that accidents and experimentation can yield amazing and unexpected results. The Carle Museum
Two things I love about Keri and her approach: 1) Keriispermission: to break away from my usual linear self and send it on vacation.2) Keriisencouragement: to create what she calls a habit of experimentation which can be so beneficial in living a full, creative life (and in learning new ways to tell our stories with words and photos). Ali Edwards, author of Life Artist
Once you get going, the book really becomes a source of liberation; it frees you to make a mess, stop thinking about the outcome and just enjoy the process. Let go. See what happens. And enjoy your complete disregard for the outcome. A great family activity. Family First

Praise for Keri Smith
Keri Smith may well be the self-help guru this DIY generation deserves. TheBeliever
A conceptual artist and author luring kids into questioning the world and appreciating every smell, texture and mystery in it. TIMEMagazine"
