With a little imagination, the most unlikely object can be transformed into something beautiful! This book is all about having fun with art. The 12 projects show how you can make something unique out of cheap or unwanted materials. Squirrelling away bottles, feathers, pebbles, corks and lots more, you can make all kinds of exciting things ranging from a Button Snowman to The Owl and the Pussycat Puppet Show, from a Geometric Fish to a Self-Portrait Plate. So delve into your cupboards, pull out your household junk, and get creative!
The projects in this book are the result of many years of work at The Art Room with children of all ages. The Art Room is a charity that offers young people the chance to learn and achieve through art. Its aim is to tap into the innate creativity and imagination of every child, enabling them to experience the satisfaction of creating extraordinary objects out of the simplest of materials. Costs have had to be kept down, so lots of the materials used are either cheap or free. Many can be found around the home. The authors are keen to be good to the planet and have recycled everything they could.
