Winner - Creative Play Award 2010
The Usborne Complete Book of Art Ideas has won the 'Books and Teaching Resources' category in the Creative Play Awards 2010. The judges said: "A super book! There are many projects to do with children which can be done in one or two lessons. The ideas are original and instructions are easy to follow".
This is a fabulous book, although partly designed for children, it is full of wonderful techniques and activities that will unlock the creativity in adults too! We found it a positive treasure trove of ideas, clearly explained with step-by-step illustrations to inspire you to create your own artwork. We absolutely loved it! Highly Recommended!’
