Sometimes art can seem intimidating to kids--but collage, with its layering of already-existing images and materials, feels like something they can master. With this exciting new entry in Lark's My Very Favorite Art Book series, readers aged five and up will have a blast learning basic techniques and producing fabulous finished pieces. Young artists will get creative as they cut out facial features from magazines and rearrange them in whimsical portraits; weave strips of paper together to form interesting visual patterns; and design a cityscape from geometric shapes. They can even make personalized greeting cards for friends and family. Each finished project is showcased in a full-page photograph or illustration--and because the text is kept to a minimum, even pre-readers can follow along.
