Marion Abrams & Hilary Emerson Lay
Art Sparks: Draw, Paint, Make, and Get Creative with 53 Amazing Projects!

Bring the kids to Northshire for a morning with Marion Abrams and Hilary Emerson Lay as they guide us through a craft from their new book Art Sparks, a friendly, approachable pathway to learning essential art skills and a springboard for building self-confidence and promoting independence.

Arts and crafts inspire and stimulate the imagination and can help to boost a child’s confidence. In Art Sparks, art educators Marion Abrams and Hilary Emerson Lay prompt children to push their creative boundaries with 53 open-ended arts and crafts projects that foster problem-solving skills and encourage individuality.

A lively and colorful collection of projects, Art Sparks is specifically designed to ignite creativity and nurture children’s discovery and exploration of their own unique talents. From finger puppets and shrink art to papier-mâché alpacas and sock critters, each activity uses inexpensive and/or upcycled art materials and can be crafted in 90 minutes or less. Interspersed with fun facts about famous artists and art traditions from around the globe, this book invites children of all skill levels to explore a range of art forms with projects like Maori Tattoo, Mexican Tiled Mirror, Amate Bark Painting, and Pencil-Eraser Pointillism.
