It's about to get messy around here (and a little scary!) Just in time for this month's spooky festivities comes a book that will probably creep you out, make you laugh, and bring out your inner monster (yikes!!) Here's a peak at Mean-n-Messy Monsters from the Cartooning for Kids series by Dave Garbot.
Journaling can be one of the best ways for artists to relax, reflect, spark creativity, and perhaps even get to know themselves better. How cathartic yet energizing to freely draw, write, and dream with a personal journal.
We thought we would end Kids Week with something especially exciting... a sneak peak!
When it comes to your creative life, what type of seeds have you planted? Doubt, discouragement, hesitancy? Artist and author Alena Hennessy invites us to take a deeper look at the innate artist within all of us and go back to our roots. Her book, Cultivating Your Creative Life, may be just the catalyst to root out negativity and allow your artistic garden to beautifully blossom.
There's nothing more happy than a brightly colored picture. It's true, colors are just happy.
Next in our KIDS WEEK of giveaways is the I Can Draw series. With these approachable and engaging guides children ages four years and older will discover how easy it is to draw a range of favorite animals and subjects.
"I'm ambidextrous. I can write just as poorly with either hand." Jarod Kintz
The Drawing Club is based off of the real-life, Los Angeles gathering of serious artists who come together and sketch models in character costumes including Edward Scissorhands and the Steam Punk variety. Since only a small number of artists can actually attend a Drawing Club session to hone their skills, this book serves as a peek into the world of 2-D creativity for the rest of us.
