about

The 26 projects in Little Learning Labs: Art for Kids will get children excited about creating fine art and help them discover their personal voice and style.

Art for Kids is a well of inspiration for young artists interested in making their own fine art. This abridged, paperback edition of Art Lab for Kids features 26 fine art projects, which are broken into lessons. Kids will start with drawing, move on to painting and printmaking, and tie it all together with paper collage and mixed media. Each lesson includes an example from contemporary artists like Lisa Congdon, Megan Bogonovich, and Amy Rice, making it easy for kids to see different styles of art as they develop their own style and voice.

Each lab can be completed as a single project or—for ambitious artists looking to start a portfolio—be taken in a sequence. The lessons in Little Learning Labs: Art for Kids are open-ended and designed to be explored over and over with different mediums, attitudes, and points of view. Colorful photos throughout illustrate different artists' takes on the same lesson, exemplifying the way the lesson brings out each artist's personal style.

Little Learning Labs: Art for Kids is the perfect book for creative families, friends, and community groups, and works as a lesson plan for both experienced and new art teachers.

The activities are open-ended, designed to be explored over and over, often with different results. Geared toward being taught or guided by adults, they are enriching for a range of ages and skill levels. Gain firsthand knowledge on your favorite topic with Little Learning Labs.
