Between the pages of Art School you'll find a complete art course! Created by Mick Manning when he was the Head of Illustration at the world-famous Glasgow School of Art, it gives you the feel of real art student projects, helping you create still lifes, self-portraits, sculptures, even your own paper and your first printed book!

Imagine looking out a window and then creating a painting that captures all that’s out there ? the color and action, even the mood, sounds, and smells. Art School enables children to do just that. Based on Mick Manning’s highly acclaimed course at the Glasgow School of Art, the book shows readers how to use pencils, crayons, watercolors, and collage tools to create still-lifes, self-portraits, sculptures, masks, a book, and other fun, doable projects. It encourages children to think of art as an act of exploration ? of the senses, the world around them, and of their own creative potential.

Learn how to create still lifes, self-portraits, sculptures, your own paper -- even your first printed book!
