A fun-filled art activity book that will encourage kids to express themselves while teaching them about key artistic styles and a selection of pioneering artists from history.

Explore your creative side as you discover the artist that lies within. Each of the fun activities included in this book will teach you about a different area of art and design. Learn about the history and theory of art before getting your hands dirty while creating your very own masterpieces.

With more than 30 activities designed to encourage and stimulate even the most reluctant artist, How to Be an Artist gets the creative juices flowing. From mark making to woodworking, and photography to sculpture, there’s a project for every art aficionado to get into.

Perfect for children ages 7-9, the activities not only instil a passion for art, but also help kids learn about how art fits into the world of STEAM. Famous artist pages teach children about the pioneers of artistic movements, such as Andy Warhol, Joan Miro, and Pablo Picasso. Different artistic disciplines are explained in the topic pages. From the basics, such as composition and perspective, to the trickier techniques of illusion and graphic design, this art activity book for kids has it all.
