Much, much more than just colouring-in or joining-the-dots, this superb 200-page art activity book draws on the latest educational knowledge and results of testing by real kids and teachers at Te Papa and beyond. It encourages creativity, lateral thinking, and pure enjoyment in art. The book is designed primarily for children aged 5-8 but will appeal to children of any age who are interested in drawing and being creative. Written and developed by Helen Lloyd, Senior Education Programmer at Te Papa, in consultation with Senior Art Curator Sarah Farrar, the book includes a wonderful range of drawing activities. Many of them are inspired by paintings, photographs, and prints from the national art collection. Colour reproductions of works by artists such as Colin McCahon, Rita Angus, and Michael Smither will engage and inspire children. Quotations from artists will stimulate children to think creatively, and 10 freshly commissioned drawings from contemporary New Zealand artists will let children's imaginations run wild. Activities include imaginative ideas for drawing and collage, fun ways to learn about using perspective, composition, and colour, guides for drawing portraits, landscapes, abstract art, and optical illusions ...and much more.
