Holy cow you guys! My new book PLAY MAKE CREATE – a Process Art Handbook is here!!! Well, it’s almost here. It’s available for pre-order on Amazon and will ship June 11th. I am so so excited and filled with all the feels. Writing a book is no joke. I’ve watched so many of my friends go through this process and now experiencing it for myself, I am just like woah, that was intense. It’s actually still intense because I haven’t held it in my hands and my girls (featured on the cover) haven’t held it in their hands and I haven’t hugged my husband Ev yet, when it arrives, and I know that’s going to be a moment I’ll never forget.
Here is a little glimpse of what you can expect in the book…
*An introduction to Process Art and best practices
*A pep talk for moms
*Over 40 Invitations to Create
*Easy to set up, and super manageable prompts
*10 longer process based projects that develop over time
*Ton of tips and suggestions
*Language for how to talk to kids about art making
*Tried and true activities that you can totally handle and you don’t have to buy a lot of materials for
*My favorite recipes for fun sensory activities
Here’s one of the projects from the book. Can you guess our secret ingredient? I’ll give you a clue. It’s not sand. It’s cheap and easy and beautiful and you can use it for all kinds of fun crafts for kids. The recipe is in PLAY MAKE CREATE.
If you’d like to pre-order the book, it comes with a lot of free goodies so check those out here.
I hope you love love love it. A I am so honored to have worked with Quarto Publishing on this project and I hope to write many more books in the future.
