Making Amazing Art by Henry is a great asset to have on your shelf if you are new to creating art with kids or want some great ideas that go beyond the everyday!

This resource introduces the 7 design elements and names artists for introducing the concept. I have taught 30 years and use this book in an after school art program with K-2 students. It is most appropriate for K-6 range. This book really gives students an opportunity to use art vocabulary and begin to recognize themselves as artists! I can't wait to teach more of the art in this book!

This book is great for that new art teacher. It is one of many ways to set up a yearly plan basic on the design elements. The pojects are not dull and should prove challenging for the appropriate age/grade.

This book does a good job of teaching the 7 elements of art design, but the projects are fairly mundane. This book would be good for the beginning art teacher, or someone who does not have a background in art. If you have been teaching art for a while, there will be nothing new here.
