“What a great resource for a new art teacher, a family who loves to create, or a small group art facilitator! I appreciated the ‘messy meter’ and the collection of advanced techniques for kids who are ready to spread their creative wings. I especially loved the mixed media chapter, chock full of ideas that make use of easily sourced (and free) materials. I’m inspired by Korri and Daniel’s Instagram page and look forward to trying out some of these art projects with my students!”―Keira Havner, founder of Art Class PDX
“The Beginner’s Art Book for Kids is a must-have for every family’s library! Daniel and Korri write in a warm, approachable tone and have developed interesting, fun projects in drawing, painting, sculpture, and printmaking that will grab your child’s interest. I love that each project has a ‘Messy Meter’ from 1-5 so you know ahead of time how much clean up will be needed. Written simply enough for kids to understand, each chapter of this book also offers inspiration parents and teachers will love.”―Sally Sanders, author of Modern Calligraphy for Kids and The Print and Cursive Handwriting Workbook
”The Beginner Art Book for Kids is a great hands-on tool for children (and parents) who wish to discover their own creativity. Along with step-by-step instructions, you will find ample information and inspiration to delve into art projects! The authors have done a great job in creating a resource filled with pencil art fundamentals, as well as a good crafting resource. Great book with lots of color and design ideas to keep you engaged!”―Aaria Baid, artist, blogger @surelysimpleblog on IG, and author of How to Draw for Kids
