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.

I have recently started my own children's art classes and this book has been my guide. It has been the one thing I've used from day one!

Need a way to fill time this summer? I have a family of boys whose artisitic abilities range from "impressive" to "huh?" With one or another off at day camp and needing a way to fill time while we wait for activities to end, many of these projects are simply perfect.

This book shows projects using transportable materials you can do on the go. Colored paper, markers, scissors. Glue. Yarn. Chalk. Straws. You've got all this stuff, and this book shows you (with COLOR illustrations) how to go step-by-step to creating something.

There are quite a few more in-depth projects, involving painting and sculpting... This book is a great resource for our family.
