Art Book:1 2 3, I Can Sculpt

 1,2,3, I Can Sculpt is colourful book geared to helping your young ones have fun creating sculptures.  The book starts off explaining what a sculpture is

"a piece of art that has more than one side to look at".

Isn't that just the most straight-forward definition of a sculpture that you have heard?

The next pages walk you through some items you can use for sculpting, egg cartons, aluminum foil, tape and more. 

Our path is led on by the question "How do you form the idea for a sculpture?"

For instance.. what can an egg carton make?  or how about a piece of paper? Can clay make a sculpture?  Before you know it, you'll have seven ideas for sculptures you can make.. perhaps you might even come up with more.. all on your own!

I loved the big text, and the clear images, making it easy for anyone to help a younger child learn how to make a sculpture out of the various objects used throughout the book.

Try things out, see what you can make a sculpture out of! 

The book closes with a parent/teacher section, giving you ideas and vocab words to use with your children. 

It's a nice beginner sculpting book, check it out eh?
