Making Sense of Art

User Review  - adamai - Overstock.com

This book is well organized and clearly indicates which senses each activity addresses. The activities seem to be of high quality. The drawbacks are that there are only 18 activities in the whole book and the activities are pretty involved in terms of time and supplies. Read full review
