We are a family of artists and we love creating. I am also an Arts Award Advisor with Trinity College, London and run workshops for Home Educated children. Many children come to my workshops believing they can never be an artist because they can’t draw. As we work together developing their ideas and interests, they come to realise they are artists and were born creative beings.
I am always on the look out for great art books to inspire the children on my workshops. For me, a good art book is well illustrated with simple and clear instructions. So far, all the books I have brought from the SEARCH PRESS (specialist art and craft book publishers) have met this criteria. So, I wrote and told them. In response, they sent me 4 art books for us to try out. In return, I have offered to review the books on this site.
Over the next few weeks, we will be choosing activities from each of the books and letting you know how it went. At the end of the 4 reviews, I will do a “Give Away” where you’ll get a chance to win one of the books. So, watch this space!
