Three-Dimensional Art Adventures: 36 Creative, Artist-Inspired Projects in Sculpture, Ceramics, Textiles, and More

$19.99

Three-dimensional art is bold, tactile, and fun—in other words, perfect for children who love to get their hands dirty.

Three-Dimensional Art Adventures introduces young artists, ages 6 and up, to groundbreaking masterpieces and fresh techniques, then lets them loose. Children will:
            - Weave a tapestry using yarn and a shoebox loom
            - Use found and recycled materials to assemble a still-life collage
            - Tie-dye a T-shirt using several pattern-creation techniques
            - Design and build a shadow box on a personal theme
            - Use modeling clay and pipe cleaners to create a spider sculpture
            - Create a colorful flower arrangement using wire, tissue paper, and other materials
            - Fold and cut paper, cardboard, and magazine photos to build an elaborate street scene
            - Carve a portrait into a clay slab and paint the raised surfaces to enhance the image
            - and 28 other engaging, hands-on projects.

Authors and educators Maja Pitamic and Jill Laidlaw also explore the stories and meanings behind 18 well-known works of three-dimensional art as inspiration for these kid-tested, exciting, and creative projects. No prior knowledge of three-dimensional art is required—just enthusiasm for the subject and a willingness to discover.
