This large and impressive looking book is full of surprises and I have spent simply ages finding out so many different aspects about art and being an artist.
It starts with the introduction to five professors and their talents, then goes to the 40 lessons to explore new and different ways to make your own creative work.
There are loads of activities to look at flat shapes and three dimensional, patterns and colours…
There is a section, for instance on repetition and rhythm in art, making patterns that are aesthetically pleasing. I loved the section on experimentation and being creative.

This book is well worth the money, it isn’t expensive at £14.99 and would make an excellent present, be a great book in school, for the art room or the library and in the home bookshelf.
But don’t be surprised if it spends more time on the coffee table than on the shelves!
