ReadItDaddy's Second Picture Book of the Week - Week Ending 20th March 2020 - "Be An Artist Every Day" by Susan Schwake and Charlotte Farmer (Ivy Kids)

Our second book of the week has filled us with artistic inspiration and has so many amazing things packed into it, we can't stop wondering what the next creative day will bring.

As any artist will tell you, drawing and doodling, painting and creating is almost like a muscle you need to exercise every day. If you can manage to fit a bit of creativity into your daily life (as we both do) you'll find it immensely satisfying.

"Be an Artist Every Day" by Susan Schwake and Charlotte Farmer tackles one of the most difficult things most artists struggle with - getting that initial creative spark to kick off a doodle or a drawing.

In this fab little compact book you'll find a whole year's worth of art activities, prompts and projects to really give your creativity a huge boost.

From simple exercises and doodles to more wide-ranging and in-depth ideas that will turbo-charge your artistic abilities, with lots of advice and references from the way famous artists work.

Let's take a look inside this fantastic book, and see what's on offer!


Nearly all art books like this start out with a 'materials' page - Always useful for reference!
Gather up your favourite drawing and painting materials, get yourself a nice big piece of paper or a sketchpad and get cracking!

Unlike most books, this one positively encourages you to doodle all over it! Just don't do this with your other books, OK?
It's perfect for imaginative and creative kids who love the idea of working through an artistic exercise every day.

You will have a whale of a time with this 'swap-around' art challenge!!
Be as creative, as colourful and as fanciful as you like!

Sum this book up in a sentence: A truly fabulous idea for creative kids, a whole years worth of art exercises, prompts and doodling opportunities in a compact book small enough to tuck into your bag along with your fave art materials!

"Be An Artist Every Day" by Susan Schwake and Charlotte Farmer is out now, published by Ivy Kids (kindly supplied for review).
