Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but inspiration is the name of the game with this cool kit. Rather than teaching kids how to copy great works of the masters, our Create Art Like Famous Artists Kit
presents a little bit about iconic artists and their signature techniques, then lays out a kid-friendly art project inspired by each artist that encourages youngsters' imaginations. Crafts include experimenting with different drawing tools to create a personalized take on Degas's famous dancers, using textiles to assemble a brightly colored landscape like Kandinsky, and gluing together beans and lentils into a mosaic like the ones discovered in Pompeii. The book includes nineteen creative projects and is packaged with art board, colored craft paper, colored tissue paper, three oil pastels, one pencil, a black marker, one tube of acrylic paint, six watercolor paint pans (with palette), two paintbrushes, one piece of chalk, a sponge, children's scissors, scalloped-edge craft scissors, a glue stick, and three pipe cleaners. For ages 8 and up.
