This is one of the best craft books I've ever read! The ideas are easy, inexpensive, and not geared too young. Great information about artistic techniques and various modern artists. I couldn't enjoy this book more! Read full review

Anybody who likes modernism will enjoy these craft projects. Most of them are pretty simple. And this is a great way to make sure your kid is bougie enough to know who Anni Albers is in grade school. Read full review
