Inspirational and stimulating content devised by expert author Susan Schwake introduces children to the colourful, vibrant and varied world of art. From readers with little experience to those who love all things art, Be an Artist Every Day is the perfect year-long companion.
The diverse range of activities in this book include drawing, painting and writing exercises, as well as opportunities to learn about and emulate celebrated artists and art movements from around the world. Children are encouraged to engage with their imagination and the world around them and record their findings in their own words and pictures in the journal.
When they’ve completed the book, readers will have developed their artistic confidence, becoming more mindful of the world around them. Best of all, they will have a beautiful, one-of-a-kind keepsake of the 365 days in which they discovered their own personal creativity.
