Thank you to the lovely folks at Roost Books for sending me a review copy of The Artful Parent.
I am a huge fan of Jean Van't Hul's blog, The Artful Parent, and have been looking forward to Jean's book ever since she announced that she was writting one.
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 covers everything from choosing art supplies, talking to kids about their art, displaying kid's art, and 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.
With titles like 'Getting Fancy' the girls and I were ready to make!
And we have lots of plans...
The Artful Parent is perfect for parents, grandparents, and teachers. It is the type of book that will be used over and over again and referred to for years.
