This is a fabulous book! It has dozens of great projects in the four sections: Drawing (Horizons, Shadows, Still Life); Color (Color Wheel, Painting Techniques, Printmaking); Sculptures (Clay, Fabric, Plaster); & Mixed Media (Costumes, Pinata, Puppets).

The instructions were easy to understand and the materials list at the beginning was perfect. I really enjoyed the "Sketchbook Study" as well.

Wonderful book for teachers, parents or the young at heart wishing to try a variety of different art assignments.
