Art Lab for Kids: Express Yourself

52 Creative Adventures to Find Your Voice Through Drawing, Painting, Mixed Media, and Sculpture (Lab Series)

Art Lab for Kids: Express Yourself is a fun collection of art activities that
encourage children to create freely, using their own thoughts and experiences
as a guide.

The most important gift we can give children is to nurture their creativity
and allow them to express themselves freely.
 There‚Äôs no better way to
express yourself than through creative art projects. This is especially true
for children as it provides them with an outlet to explore their developing
interests and strengths.

Each lesson asks questions and offers personal choices while encouraging diverse approaches and creative thinking. Many projects include varying examples and executions of the activity to illustrate and reinforce the open-ended nature of the labs, inspiring children to embrace and share their own voice.

Art Lab for Kids: Express Yourself contains 52 all new and original art
projects that will help each young artist develop their own style, document
their thoughts, and build confidence in their unique perspective. Each lesson
asks questions and offers personal choices while encouraging diverse
approaches and creative thinking.
