This book presents a series of guided, easy-to-follow workshops aimed at children of a primary school age and upwards, working under supervision but not necessarily in the classroom. Each project will build confidence with techniques and materials, encouraging the child to engage with more challenging ideas once they understand the usefulness and relevance of the skills they have already acquired. The projects move from simple 2-D designs exploring colour and form right up to more complex 3-D forms mixing techniques and media. Each project contains options for experimenting with other media.
