As a source of inspiration for my work as an Educator at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, MA, Susan s books are on prominent display in our hands-on Art Studio. Her project suggestions provide an inspiring platform for discovering techniques, materials and processes that speak to learners of all ages. I'm thrilled to add Art For All Seasons to our carefully-curated resource collection!

Susan Schwake's Art for All Seasons, her newest volume of art activities, follows in her tradition of studio art based art education for children. This book presents high quality art experiences inspired by contemporary artists that leads to the creation of relevant and significant artwork, easily adapted for children of all ages. The foundation of the seasons and nature adds another layer of relevancy and meaning to the creative experience. Art for All Seasons is another important contribution to the literature of meaningful art making for children.
