This new edition of the hugely successful 'Art in a Box' is an ideal way of introducing children to the world of art and encouraging them to use their own artistic creativity. Ideal for children's entertainment at home or as a resource for teachers in the classroom, 'Art in a Box' contains twenty A5 cards each depicting a work from Tate's collection, with a range of related art activities detailed on the reverse including painting, collage, textile, photography and sculpture.

Sarah is an artist, a teacher and an educational consultant and is a visiting lecturer at Goldsmith's College and the Institute of Education. Drawing on her extensive experience in the classroom she has developed 'Art in a Box' as a tool to inspire children about art and to get them making their own.

Each card features a full colour image of an art work with activity notes on the back. The notes encourage children to notice details about the art work, and then gives them clear instructions on how to make their own work of art in a similar vein. Artists featured include Picasso, Hepworth, Ofili, Moore, Klee, Pollock, Blake and Gilbert & George.

Contains: 20 colour a5 cards, glossary of key terms, practical tips, colour wheel.

Winner of the 2006 Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award.

    : A truly inspirational arty box of treats with great images and ideas which help the reader to engage in art work, learn about an interesting selection of artists and gives simple and exciting starting points for individual creativity. I am a primary teacher and a non specialist in Art. This box has helped me enormously to plan and deliver great lessons that my class have thoroughly loved. Excellent!!
