Fantastic ideas and practical advice. A brilliant book which children can easily follow alone or enjoy using with parents Uses innovative materials and advanced mediums which children are not always exposed to, thus empowering them to create some of their best works Thoughtfully written and illustrated by a true artist who treats children like little adults We love it A beautifully presented and open book Shared this book with my art teacher s network I m just about to start a project on treehouses with one of my classes so it arrived just in time to give me an extra boost I d say the aim of this book is to give you the confidence to try things out, and experiment and make mistakes It s not a book of activities , it s a book of starting points on a creative journey. Another cracking book, lots of ideas that can be used as springboards to develop 3D work in the Primary classroom, After school club or at home. Excellent book for art teachers both primary and secondary , workshops facilitators, parents and anyone interested in broadening their 3D making skills.
