What is the Terrific Toys Sketchbook?
This book contains information about art styles, artists and drawing ideas. But first and foremost it is made of very special water-colour paper that allows you to use all the wonderful art materials you have at home: markers, pencils, oil pastels, chalks, paints, collage materials and so on, in order to create amazing works of art.
The theme of toys and games survive from the most remote past and from a great variety of cultures. The ball, kite, and yo-yo are assumed to be the oldest objects specifically designed as toys. Toys vary from the simplest to the most complex things, from a stick chosen by a child and imagined to be a hobby horse, to sophisticated and complex mechanical devices.
Some of the projects in this sketchbook include:
- Making a Polar Scene play set with polar bears, penguins and pine trees
- Exploring the Nutcracker and creating ballerinas, mice and toy soldiers
- Building a circus puppet theatre with your very own tent, acrobat, lion and horse
- Looking at traditional toys and making a paper spinner, marble run, owl mask and more!
