Description

Youngsters enjoy a wonderful creativity that allows them to express themselves joyfully through art. As they get older the urge to create remains, but they may not believe they possess “real” artistic talent. This Jumbo Book bridges that gap. Art techniques provide the basis for over 200 pages of drawing, painting, sculpture and mixed-media crafting projects, along with itemized material lists and a glossary that will give kids the confidence and freedom to explore!

About the Author

Irene Luxbacher is a Canadian artist and author. She has received numerous awards and nominations for many of her children’s books over the years, but her favourite nods of approval come from readers who share the remarkable art they’ve made after reading one of her books. She wrote and illustrated the acclaimed picture books Deep Underwater and Mr. Frank. Irene was also honored to illustrate Malaika’s Costume and its sequel, Malaika’s Winter Carnival, by the talented Nadia L. Hohn. She lives in Toronto with her family who keep her very busy because she loves them and worries about them constantly.
