The Artful Parent

Raising children in an art-rich environment encourages their creativity, imagination, and self-confidence. The Artful Parent gives you the tools and inspiration to provide such an environment for your family. By providing an engaging balance of information and art activities, text and photos, whys and how-tos, The Artful Parent will help you transform your home into a more creative environment, whether you feel creative yourself or not. The book includes basic information about getting started, stocking up on art supplies, setting up an art space, and talking to children about art. The process-oriented arts and crafts projects included in each chapter are a far cry from the cookie-cutter crafts many of us did in school as kids. They are accessible, developmentally appropriate, enjoyable, and use basic art supplies. Each activity includes easy-to-understand instructions, age guidelines, and variations. With over sixty activities, the projects are organized by themes that make fitting art projects into a family’s lifestyle easier. These themes include quick and easy art; exploring new materials and techniques; action art; quiet art for downtimes and transitions; and art for playdates, parties, and groups.
