An inspiring collection of ideas and projects for encouraging an artistic spirit in children! 3D Art Lab for Kids includes 36 kid-friendly fine art projects in paper, clay, textiles, sculpture, and jewellery. Each project is inspired by the work of a prominent artist and is illustrated with step-by-step full-colour photographs of the process as well as finished samples and variations.
Whether you use these projects independently or as a curriculum for hands-on 3D art experiences, you'll find that the lessons in this book are open-ended so they can be explored over and over-with different results each time! Colourful photos illustrate how different people using the same lesson will yield different results, exemplifying the way the lesson brings out each artist's personal style. 3D Art Lab for Kids is the perfect book for creative families, friends, and community groups and works as lesson plans for both experienced and new art teachers. Children of all ages and experience levels can be guided by adults and will enjoy these engaging exercises.

Industry Reviews

"I love Susan's Art Lab series and reference them in the Art Studio often. They're easy to follow, full of images, and directed at open-ended exploration - exactly the kind of reference I need for my own busy home." - Meghan Burch, Art Studio Educator, The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Amherst, MA

"Schwake combines 32 3-D art projects with interviews with four artists, each of whom is photographed. The first two chapters give general instructions for setting up for each project, providing an exhaustive list of materials needed. The subsequent five chapters each focus on a single medium: paper, clay, textiles, sculpture, and jewelry. The six relatively simple paper projects use mostly found bits of paper. The seven clay objects range in size and difficulty but require a kiln. The six textile projects use fabric, yarn, or jute. The eight sculptures require corrugated cardboard, papier-mche goo, plaster, pasteboard, or joint compound. Finally, the five jewelry projects are made with paper, card stock, or various types and sizes of beads. Instructions are always detailed, both through step-by-step photographs of children making each object and the detailed text. This well-written book with myriad color illustrations is a must-have for art teachers or those who help children appreciate art and artists."-Booklist

Seems to be aimed at pre primary students
