The Organic Artist for Kids offers hands-on art experiences that help children explore their native landscapes. As a DIY resource, Neddo provides inspiring instruction for making art with, and about, nature. He also leaves plenty of room for children to wander and play along the way. Parents, teachers, and kids will all love this resource! - Monica Wiedel-Lubinski, Executive Director of ERAFANS, Author of Nature Play Workshop for Families
There's a universe of inexpensive art supplies hiding in parks, grasslands, gardens and forests, if you know what to look for. This gorgeous guide reconnects readers with nature using simple recipes and instructions for manipulating plants, sticks, stones and other organic materials to make everything from brushes and charcoal, to richly-colored homemade paints and landscape sculpture. - Liz Lee Heinecke, The Kitchen Pantry Scientist, Author of Kitchen Science Lab for Kids
