The Organic Artist for Kids
In addition to offering a wide variety of fun, collaborative projects using nature as a source for art supplies and inspiration, this book also introduces the concepts of awareness and perception that are fundamental to the creative process. Children will be encouraged to learn new skills, build resilience, and be resourceful as part of an urgent struggle to prevent and undo Nature Deficit Disorder.
Rooted in experimentation and an understanding that fun is fundamental to learning, kids will refine their drawing skills, as well as increase their appreciation for the visual arts and the natural landscape.
Just some of the projects and skills covered:
- Making paper and wild inks.
- Painting with mud.
- Crafting your own paintbrushes.
- Making simple stencils and rubbings.
