Whether it's weaving or making pottery or working on your computer or turning junk into something unexpected and wonderful, 'An ABC of What Art Can Be' is an invitation to look around and think creatively-outside the boring box. After all, "A is for artist, creator of art, Making all sorts of things with the hands and the heart." The playful rhymes and dazzling collages are reminders that each of us is unique and can produce a work of art that's equally unique. In this lively book readers will find an ABC that's unlike any other. It includes four pages of "fun stuff"- easy-to-do activities inspired by the text and illustrations. Ages four and up.
