Animals, both real and imagined, have long been a favourite subject in art. Part of their beauty lies in their versatility as subjects: they are often used as symbols, but they can also be majestic creative muses in their own right. In this art box, we look at creatures big and small, from wild animals with Franz Marc, Salvador Dali and Durer, to farm animals with Picasso and Tracey English, and finally at bugs and butterflies with Louise Bourgeois and Lois Ehlert.
This LoLA Box includes:
• A booklet introducing the theme, with information about artists, art styles and techniques.
• Clear instructions on seven art projects, appropriate for children of any age (3+ years), with tips to tailor each project for the under 4s.
• Includes LoLA book recommendations for further reading.
• Plenty of quality art materials for your child: A set of acrylic paints, paintbrush, styrofoam sheet, water-colour paper
