"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

She phoned me to tell me how enchanted she was about the book. Even the cover she found inspiring.
Each “lab” or lesson has easy-to-follow written instructions along with images demonstrating each step in the process. To get young minds thinking of what to draw/paint/collage/print, Susan Schwake offers suggestions; for example, the sprinkling of salt on watercolour has the effect of white or light specks similar to snow or stars.
I always find it helpful and inspiring to see how other artists have created a finished artwork using a specific art medium or certain technique. Every lab in Art Lab for Kids includes a “Meet the Artist” section featuring an artwork by a contemporary artist, along with links to the artist’s blog, website or online shop.
A lot of explanations and very useful. Good buy
