Art Lab for Kids by Susan Schwake

Art Lab for Kids is a wonderful book for homeschool parent, creative families, scout groups etc….their easy to follow instructions is what makes this book so pleasant and easy to use. Everything is spelled out for you in every detail.

This book can be used for every age group. It’s that diverse! Everything is well thought out and it seems that the processes have all been tried and are true! You can create just about anything with drawings, paintings, printmaking, paper and mixed media from 52 Art Lab for Kids!

There are 52 projects which can be used as a guideline and your art lessons are planned out for you for the whole year. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3! Your whole year can be planned out easily if you follow the schedule.

I loved the ease in how the instructions and pictures were laid out and explained. All of the directions were straight forward and easily understood. My Cub Scout den loved the projects we have done so far. They are already asking what’s next! The only thing I was not prepared for was the cost of obtaining the supplies needed. If you’re already an artist or have a lot of craft supplies, then it’s an easy task. However, it has started our Cub Scout den to create their own craft bin. We are looking forward to quite a few more craft projects that go along with our achievements needed to advance in Cub Scouting.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who has kids, works with kids or is just a creative person in general! Lots of fun and exciting projects to be made/created!
