An inspiring introduction to the concept of art as a vehicle to comment on or question the world... Tackling painting, sculpture, paper craft, photography, and more, this art-related activity book asks readers to respond to the world around them by creating. The instructions leave room for experimentation, and suggested materials are easy to find, often incorporating everyday household objects.
