For parents with young children, Time to Create: Hands-On Explorations in Process Art for Young Children is a practical guide for setting up a number of art projects that utilize a variety of mediums from rock drawing to shaving cream color mixing.

The areas of exploration include drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, sculpture, textiles, digital photography and the use of of natural materials. Before getting started, the author explains how to tackle a number of concerns or situations a parent or teacher might encounter. These include how to encourage reluctant artists, how to select the right activity for a child, and how to talk to a youngster about his or her art-making experience.

The individual activities are explained with clear step-by-step directions and you'll find a list of needed supplies and plenty of photos that will make it easy to picture the process in your mind.

Families engaged in home schooling and art educators will find this a very useful book with plenty of good ideas for making art accessible to children from preschool through the middle primary grades.
