This book offers families a cherry picked selection of Alice and Karen’s tried and tested artÂ projects with clear instructions on how to make them at home. They reveal their top tips forÂ creating stunning art work that parents and children will want to keep and display (ratherÂ than consign to the recycling bin)! All the projects use a household item as the startingÂ point, making the activities largely accessible. Within this framework the book is organisedÂ into sections according to the time scale of the project to help families make the most ofÂ the time they have available beginning with shorter projects. A comprehensive but affordable kit list is part of the introduction and includes many itemsÂ families will already own. Along with a basic kit list Alice and Karen spill a few in houseÂ secrets about their go-to materials for maximum impact and a professional finish. PlasticÂ materials are kept to a minimum. Let’s Make Art champion sustainable, recycled artÂ projects with their home based starting point for projects. This craft book for children and their families is a unique addition to the market as itÂ elevates children’s art to the status it deserves by showing children how to achieve boldÂ work with a professional finish. The projects are cheeky, flamboyant and have their ownÂ very particular style, especially the costumes and wearable artwork. Having worked forÂ galleries, libraries and restaurants Let’s Make Art have amassed an array of art projectsÂ that avoid messy clearing up for parents and children.
