Schwake combines 32 3-D art projects with interviews with four artists, each of whom is photographed. The first two chapters give general instructions for setting up for each project, providing an exhaustive list of materials needed. The subsequent five chapters each focus on a single medium: paper, clay, textiles, sculpture, and jewelry. The six relatively simple paper projects use mostly found bits of paper. The seven clay objects range in size and difficulty but require a kiln. The six textile projects use fabric, yarn, or jute. The eight sculptures require corrugated cardboard, papier-mâché goo, plaster, pasteboard, or joint compound. Finally, the five jewelry projects are made with paper, card stock, or various types and sizes of beads. Instructions are always detailed, both through step-by-step photographs of children making each object and the detailed text. This well-written book with myriad color illustrations is a must-have for art teachers or those who help children appreciate art and artists. Grades 4-8. --J. B. Petty

In the end, I'm bummed about the photographs. Do only white people make art?
What will you find in this book? A variety of interesting 3D projects -- paper, clay, textiles, sculpture, jewelry and more! I can't wait to introduce my students to the clay finger puppet project, cardboard relief paintings, shadow boxes, and embroidered landscapes. I also like that Susan invites the instructor/learner to use recycled materials and everyday products and objects in the projects -- a valuable lesson that teaches you don't need lots of expensive products and gear to make beautiful art.
I give this book five stars all the way and recommend it to anyone that wants to be creative with kids!
