Review by: Laurence Kitchinson and twin daughters, 03 July 2011
'My twin 10 year old girls are happiest when they are engrossed in creating art and craft masterpieces. My Art Book instantly impressed them with its bright, colourful pages, clear instructions and wide variety of inspiring projects that they can''t wait to create. Rebecca especially liked the ''My Art Studio'' pages, detailing the equipment you can collect together to have to hand when you wish to start a new project. Creating a dragon print and clay sculpture were top of the list for Melissa''s first project. For me the book is so cleverly designed, as each project acts as an introduction to a specific area of art, such as very early cave paintings or african masks. It includes famous painters through time including Edgar Degas and Vincent van Gogh through to Paul Klee and Andy Warhol, along with creating mosaics from tiles or pebbles and a Henry Moore inspired clay sculpture. My Art Book should be on a shelf in every primary school class as it cannot fail to inspire a teacher to explore this key area of the school curriculum with renewed enthusiasm. Decorating the walls of a classroom or a home with any of these projects will proudly amaze all who see them and inspire the budding artists to create further masterpieces of their own.'
