Great Art Lessons for the Creative Soul
We love to use great children's books in the art room to foster creativity. Two of our latest art resources are inspired by two amazing children's books. The Spider Weaver: A Legend of Kente Cloth written by Margaret Musgrove and illustrated by Julia Cairns, is a wonderful story about the origins of kente cloth. After reading the story to your young artists, they will enjoy creating our 3D Spider's Colorful Web Art Lesson.
Red Yellow Blue & A Dash of White Too! is a colorful story written and illustrated by C.G. Esperanza. This story is a great way to introduce young artists to the color wheel. They will further develop an understanding of texture by creating our Colorful Batik Elephant Art Lesson. What are some of your favorite children's books to use as inspiration for art lessons?
Also, make sure to check out our Art Library link to view more fantastic books, websites and videos.
