    Your child age eight or older will enjoy exploring her artistic side with this fascinating book that is part instruction, part creative genius, and all fun. From drawing simple birds to making fingerprint characters, from color experiments to shading, and from Da Vinci to Warhol and beyond, it’s almost like having your own private art teacher. There are projects for young artists at any level. The only thing I found confusing is that the book doesn’t seem to start with the easiest lesson.

From drawing simple birds to making fingerprint characters, from color experiments to shading, and from Da Vinci to Warhol and beyond, it’s almost like having your own private art teacher. There are projects for young artists at any level. The only thing I found confusing is that the book doesn’t seem to start with the easiest lesson. It talks about Leonardo Da Vinci and on the opposing page it asks you to draw Mona Lisa’s smile. It then goes on to ask the artist to copy a drawing and talks about drawing faces. It’s several pages in before the lesson on drawing simple birds. Now, I admit I’m no artist, so this could make perfect sense. I just feared a child could become frustrated with it, so I had my daughter start out with the simple birds instead.

    I got this book a few weeks ago on Urban Outfitters, I thought it would have a little bit more to read inside. This book is a great coffee table book and is FULL of activities to doodle, sketch, finish a picture, etc.. Would recommend to anyone and could be a great gift to a child interested in art to look at through the years..

    This is a fun book. For those of us who feel like we are perpetually stuck at kindergarten art, this book provides a starting place and maybe a bit of a push to help us explore. I also think it would be great to use with kids.

    This book is really something special. Though it's for all ages, to me it's like a coloring-art-activity book for adults. The best part of it is the way it's been printed; the paper is of excellent quality and everything (from the title page and publisher's info to the text and back cover) is handwritten and gives the book a hand crafted feel. Plus the exercises in it are just wonderful. This book is really something special. Though it's for all ages, to me it's like a coloring-art-activity book for adults.
