Rated 5 out of 5 by from Discover This For Yourself I had the opportunity to look through this book at a museum one day and just fell in love with it. I couldn't wait to get home to see if it was in stock at Chapters.ca. Boy! was I glad that I waited. Although it is worth the museum's $40.00 price tag, getting it at Chapters saves me a bundle. This is an all inclusive deal. Simple and ammusing instuctions along with all the needed supplies. They even supply frames to display your new talent. Although it implies that these were designed for children, this mother of two enjoyed it very much. I might even share it someday with my two little budding artist. I hope to try out some of the other Klutz Press art books soon! This one is definitely 4 1/2 stars for a beginner instructional book.
