This book encourages children to work as artists and try out different styles, techniques and mediums, basing twelve different projects on works for which the artist used the same approach. Gobbets of information about the artist are included with the reproduction of the works of art together with questions designed to help the child work out more about the effects of composition, use of colour etc. The layout encourages you to go through from cover to cover and there is a real sense of enthusiasm for making art. Some of the step by step instructions could be more detailed but the emphasis is on trying something out and discovering why it works for yourself.
