This fun and creative book features 52 fine art projects set into weekly lessons, beginning with drawing, moving through painting and printmaking, and then building to paper collage and mixed media. Each lesson features and relates to the work and style of a contemporary artist. The labs can be used as singular projects or to build up to a year of hands-on fine art experiences. Lessons are open-ended so they can be explored again and again-with different results each time! Colorful photos illustrate how different people using the same lesson will yield different results, exemplifying the way the lesson brings out each artist's personal style. Paperback by Susan Schwake. 144 pages.
