The Usborne Complete Book of Art ideas

I can't recommend this book enough, it's divided into Art Ideas, Skills and Projects and we have been able to open at random and give it all a go.

The boys are very interested in different techniques, I studied Art for many years at high school and college so I like to be reminded of long lost projects (tissue paper painting?). There is an overview of techniques, materials and ideas. Our favourite remains watercolour! This book works very well for structured education and lesson plans (each topic is covered in the two page spread) and is equally great for an autonomous approach as children can look through it and pick and choose the bits they find interesting.
