Art Skills - Usborne Books
Usborne's Art Skills book is a very used book in our home. My 10 year old son picks this book up off the shelf and does projects from it on his own all the time. The above project came from the Giraffe Collage. My son didn't want to do the Giraffe (which is really cute!), but he wanted to make these little birds. They were simple to make by following Usborne's easy instructions that are included in their art and activity books. He even started making other birds from the same concept. The vulture he made was too cool, but doesn't fit in my scanner. The metal fasteners that are used on this project allow for the birds wings to move.
Other projects in Art Skills include Tissue Paper Fruit Rubbings, Techniques for Painting Trees, Skies, and Water, Sponge Printed Animals, Finger Paint Flowers, Textured Houses, and many more projects.
If you have kids who love doing arts projects, this is a great book to have on hand for them. If you home school or want to provide extra art instruction for your children at home, this book will provide that for you.
