3 Dynamic Books to Use in the Art Room

Do you use books in your art room? If so, I have three great new books you might want to check out for your next lesson: The Pencil, by Allan Ahlberg, Art by Patrick McDonnell and I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More! by Karen Beaumont. All three books deal with the art making process and are extremely engaging for kids. Check out the video to learn more and see a project idea for each one. (I feel like I’m on Reading Rainbow!)


Tell us about your favorite art book and a simple project that goes along with it.
