The Organic Artist for Kids teaches kids how to make their own art supplies, as well as beautiful art, from the natural world.

Immersed in the natural world, The Organic Artist for Kids inspires creativity by connecting kids and their adults to their wilderness roots. It offers a wide variety of fun and collaborative projects using nature as a source for art supplies and inspiration. This book also introduces the concepts of awareness and perception that are fundamental to the creative process. It encourages children to learn new skills and experiment because fun is fundamental to learning. They will build resilience and be resourceful as part of an urgent struggle to prevent and undo Nature Deficit Disorder.  Kids will refine their drawing skills, as well as increase their appreciation for the visual arts and the natural landscape. Just some of the projects and skills covered:

Making paper and wild inks
Painting with mud
Crafting your own paintbrushes
Making simple stencils and rubbings

The Organic Artist for Kids encourages you to return to the days when art was made with all-natural materials like charcoal and birch bark.
