Ceci N'est Pas un Titre

"Some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot, others transform a yellow spot into the sun." -Pablo Picasso By drawing right along with you, Marion Deuchars encourages artist of all ages to take their doodles and turn them into works of art. This fun book is crammed with stimulating ideas to spark your creative imagination. You can complete the Mona Lisa's smile, or splatter your own Jackson Pollock, read step-by-step instructions for how to draw an expressive bird, as well as a foolproof method for drawing tricky objects like a bicycle. Packed with fun factoids and prompts, Deuchars' book is an art and history lesson all-in-one! In this interactive coloring and activity book, the author takes the broad canvas of art and fills it with drawings and activities that get the drawer thinking about what art can be, how it can be made, what it can mean for you and what it has meant for people through the ages. Printed in China.

Comments about LET'S MAKE SOME GREAT ART BOOK:

Its a nice book but wish they put age range on it. I thought it was more art concept but was somewhat disappointed as it seemed designed for younger kids than the 8 year old I bought for.

    Comments about LET'S MAKE SOME GREAT ART BOOK:

    I bought this for my 7 year old nephew who likes to paint and draw and he's thrilled and excited to be making some great art. The instructions in the book are fun and at the same time will really help improve his drawing skills.

    There's an artist in all of us, sometimes we just need a little motivation to get the creativity flowing! We love that Marion Deuchars' book not only teaches kids about art, it's also a fun refresher for adults. Do you know someone who would love to make some great art with this interactive book?

    I have this book and it is great! But with the world as it is, I'd LOVE to have it printed in the US instead of China.

    My husband is an artist and believes anyone can draw using their right brain. I don't find that it's so easy. This is a unique twist on teaching anyone how to do that plus adds the "fun factoids" so more appropriate for older kids.

    I like this book but I agree with others that I'd pay $20 if made in the USA.

    I'm not sure if this book would be all that enjoyable for someone who is more advanced in their art. This certainly looks fun for younger people, however

    Love it but seems priced a little high - just a little

    really $14 for a book. you can probably buy one just as good about the same subject online at amazon or your ereader store.

    I mean dont print in China! Worth $20 if printed in the US!

    Not only does it look fun and quirky, but I will support any gift that makes artmaking less intimidating to those who feel that can't even draw a straight line.

    cool

    Bonnie

    Looks interesting. But would you pay $60 for it? If not, quit complaining about it coming from China.

    I'd pay a bit more to have it printed in the US as well.
