Create with Artists: Art Activities for Everyone Review & GIVEAWAY

What's On? This is Create with Artists: Art Activities for Everyone by Rixt Pol and Hanna Piksen. Their book is a collection of 23 original art workshops for young people using ordinary things. The creative activities have been selected from programming at the famous Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam - a museum of modern art, contemporary art and design. These exciting art workshops are designed by the professional artists who facilitated them, using the techniques they employ in their own creative practice. The creative challenges are spread over a range of media and include - painting, sculpture, video, design, graffiti, photography and more. All workshops start with a question to trigger the imagination. For example, How do you make a très cool bag? These fun, open ended activities allow for creativity - not cookie cutter results. Workshops are neatly laid out - what you need, commentary, instructions, tips, photos and examples. Now these creative activities can be done anywhere, by anyone, whether at home, a party, community centre or school. This is a wonderful resource for arts programming ideas. See excerpts below. BIS Publishers released this 120 page hardcover on May 6, 2016. Get your copy below!
