"Having enjoyed many of MaryAnn’s books with my children, I find Action Art is another engaging book that will get your children moving in their own art creations! Full of lively activities and ideas, this is a valuable resource for anyone teaching art to young children. Children will love the sound of snapping their own paint in the Snap Painting activity. Your children will be captivated with the wide variety of projects in this book!" —Cathy Diez-Luckie, author, Famous Figures of Ancient Times
"MaryAnn Kohl’s books have always been a source of great inspiration for me and thousands of other early childhood educators. Her latest, Action Art with Barbara Zaborowski is a beautifully designed book that shows what is possible when physically active unique art ideas are shared with creative young children. What a wonderful gift this would be for a teacher, parent, or for yourself!" —Rebecca Isbell, author, Creativity and the Arts for Young Children and The Complete Book of Learning Centers

About the Authors
MaryAnn Faubion Kohl is the award-winning author of over twenty art books for children, including Discovering Great Artists, Mudworks, Preschool Art and First Art. She is a national presenter, educator, consultant, and publisher. MaryAnns focus on creativity is driven by her passion for children’s process art experiences and explorations. MaryAnn enjoys playing outside rain or shine, reading, writing, friends, and most of all, her family. MaryAnn resides in Bellingham, Washington.
Barbara Zaborowski once wished her own children’s preschool years would never end, so she began teaching preschool in 1987. Now she has the best of both worlds: two grown children, a new granddaughter, and wonderful years of working with 4 and 5 year olds. Process art has become an important part of her curriculum. She also enjoys friends, reading, the theater, great conversations, and treasure hunts. Despite her best efforts at avoiding extra work, she seems to have become a writer. This is her first book. Barbara lives and works in Phoenix, Arizona.
