Note "With schools emphasizing STEM activities for children to meet curriculum goals for standardized testing, nurturing children's artistic creativity is often given short shrift. Kirker's fun resource aims to restore the balance, offering more than two dozen projects that will spark children's interest in art and encourage creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking. Designed for kids aged 5-10, and flexible enough to use in either storytimes or classroom settings, the projects here introduce children to a variety of art techniques, from gouache and watercolor to collage and papermaking, using a curated selection of quality picture books; provide detailed directions for guiding children to experiment with these techniques to create their own projects; and include materials lists adaptable for any budget, capsule biographies of the picture books' illustrators, programming tips, and links to additional resources. Kirker's inventive projects will help library staff and educators reinforce learning, encourage experimentation, and build an appreciation for art and the creative process"--Provided by publisher.
