Product Description

Review

The simple works of art featured here are a great way to help your kids forge a lasting bond with the natural world while having fun in the process. Whether it's using different-sized pebbles to create 'paw-prints' on the beach or drawing patterns in fresh snow with a twig, there's something to interest and amuse people of all ages. || Wonderful inspiration for outdoor art classes. || The book contains nicely reproduced photographs of straightforward small-scale pieces of artwork, constructed by the the author from natural materials and shown outdoors. Rather than a catalogue of artist's works, the images in here are part illustration, part education - an attractive addition to a coffee table but also an educational guide. The author makes it clear that one reason for publishing is to inspire others to get out and have a go. And why not? While I wouldn't be keen on anyone suggesting artists head off to build hefty sculptures on hilltops, Pouyet's examples of land art are straightforward and inoffensive - and it looks like fun. || For anyone looking for some creative inspiration, this book is a brilliant guide to how you can engage more closely with the shapes, colours and textures of the outdoors. Or, if you don't feel energetic enough to forage in the garden to create works of art, then it makes a lovely chill-out book in which to lose a couple of hours soaking up an alternative take on a natural world.

About the Author

Marc Pouyet trained as a graphic designer at the Corvisart School of Graphic Arts in Paris. He has worked as a graphic artist and children's illustrator, and artistic director at the children's publishers Nathan and Ravensburger. As well as producing land art and sculptures using natural materials, he runs workshops in schools and community centres for children and adults. He lives in Saint-Maurice-pres-Crocq, France

Definately gives me lots of inspiration for when I go out and about. I did a little art piece with twigs and flowers and when I returned a little while later, someone had chalked "Very Good" beside it. I felt like a proper artist!

Wow! This is inspirational for those looking for ideas of things to do creatively outside, either themselves or with children. The photos are stunning. The ideas are stunningly simple, but soooo effective. Makes you want to get outside and get busy!

THIS WOULD BE A GREAT BOOK TO SUPPORT CREATIVITY AND USING THE NATURAL WORLD AS INSPIRATION FOR CHILDREN. THE ILLUSTRATIONS AND IDEAS ARE BEAUTIFUL AND VERY INSPIRING - I WILL BE USING IT AS AN INSPIRATIONAL PROVOCATION WITH CHILDREN.

The photos in this book are bright, plentiful and beautifully taken.I just can't believe though that someone has blatantly copied Andy Goldsworthy - and not said so! Some ideas could be described as 'inspired by Goldsworthy' but others are, as I said, complete copies!! They are simply cruder versions. Shame!!
