Prodigies aside, most kids this age aren’t interested in the final product; they are into the doing of art . . . . There is no right or wrong way, only their way. Kohl understands. She explains how to make and use many kinds of art materials based on the concept that the process not the product, is important. From old standbys like play dough to new craft discoveries like liquid crayons and frozen balloons, she provides hundreds of ways to enjoy and explore the creative process."—MetroParent, Milwaukee, Wisconsin "Kohl offers 250 projects complete with materials, processes and illustrated variations. She also adds practical hints that troubleshoot anticipated problems. The recipes are valuable well beyond the preschool years."—SchoolArts Other art books by MaryAnn Kohl: The Big Messy Art Book (Gryphon House), 0-87659-206-X Cooking Art (Gryphon House), 0-87659-184-5 Global Art (Gryphon House), 0-87659-190-X
