With this book you can take the next step in the ladder towards being an active do-it-yourself art enthusiast. You can be part of this fascinating project where you enter the minds of a selective anthology of creators as they take you along the process and techniques to transform their idea into your own art. From the famousworkshops of the Stedelijk Museum of Contemporary Art comes the opportunity of gathering (sometimes) random materials you have in your house and use them in a way you couldn't conceive before you were exposed to the imagination and creativity inside this minds. Also it will difficult not to raise some questions inside your own head that you never thought were there.This book offers the most inspiring workshops the Stedelijk Museum of contemporary art in Amsterdam has organized for young people over the past decade. Now everyone can do these fun workshops-created by renowned contemporary artists and designers-at home, at a party, at a community center, or at school.Finally there is a book about creativity that was actually made with artists, that does not to tell you how you should do it but actually stimulates you to be creative yourself.
