Art Makes People Powerful by Bob & Roberta Smith

$17.00

  • This is an amazing art activity book for kids made by celebrated British artist and Royal Academician Bob and Roberta Smith, which explores how art makes people powerful.

    Through his original artworks, discover just how art helps people to learn, through beautifully painted artworks that double as prompts for us to create beautiful art of our own.

    Completing activities on and off the page, young readers can't help but to be creative all while using with very few materials, and employing methods based in art historical principles to grow and reflect on themselves as well as their creative journey. 

    Prompts are painted in Bob and Roberta Smith's unique and distinctive style, in bright and bold colours which will stimulate children's visual imaginations, making this a beautiful object of art as well as a brilliant collection of creative prompts.

    From painting the big bang and the universe expanding, to drawing ourselves as well as our ideas, this beautiful book will show us the power inherent in artistic acts, and that we can unlock in ourselves.
