THE ARTFUL PARENT
Do you know the blog of Jean Van't Hul, The Artful Parent
? She has just released a book with the same name The Artful Parent: Simple Ways to Fill Your Family's Life with Art & Creativity
is chock-a-block full of very do-able art projects.
The book has all the tools and information you need to encourage your children’s creativity through art. You’ll learn how to set up an art space, how to talk to children about their artwork, how to choose the best art supplies (without breaking the bank), how to repurpose and organize the piles of art created, and even how to use kids' art activities to soften everyday transitions.The book covers everything and has over 60 art projects for kids ages 1 - 8.
Even though Jean
is obviously very knowledgeable about studio art, the book is so warm and inviting that you feel more like you are hanging out with your artsy friend and her sweet girls, than reading a book.
