Books: Art Lab for Kids by Susan Schwake


Yes it is here … Susan Schwake's new book, Art Lab for Kids. A must-have for all parents who would like some guidelines in how to teach your children making art. Susan has been an art teacher for kids herself during the last 20 years. With the help of her husband, Rainer Schwake who is a photographer, Susan has written down many of her lessons in easy steps. The lessons are wonderful projects for all ages… even for yourself perhaps :)                                      


Two things I really loved in this book are the little write-ups after almost each topic called 'Meet the Artist'. Here an artist is highlighted who is known for the specific kind of art-making from that specific lesson… 

And I loved the fact that I am being introduced to so many different styles of painting, drawing and illustrating… perhaps the Scribble Drawings from Lab 3 is my favorite.      <Read and See More>


Art Lab for Kids is the perfect book for creative families, friends, and community groups and works as lesson plans for both experienced and new art teachers. Children of all ages and experience levels can be guided by adults and will enjoy these engaging exercises.
