My Big, Crazy Drawing & Doodle Book is the ideal doodle journal for children with big imaginations and an enthusiasm for arts and crafts. With 128 pages of open-ended prompts that encourage use of crayons, paints, markers, and colored pencils, young artists will love learning to develop their own illustrative style and expand their artistic horizons directly on the pages of the book. After a brief review of the necessary art tools, budding artists are treated to a variety of practice doodles and warm-up exercises that encourage outside-of-the-art-box thinking. Whether children are stylizing a personal family portrait or transforming their favorite foods into quirky doodles, they will quickly discover how easy it is to explore and push the boundaries of their creativity€”all that's needed is a little imagination! Featured prompts include familiar, everyday objects and encourage their reinterpretation into whimsical doodles, including designing an original soda can; doodling "icing" on a set of colorful cupcakes; filling in a box of donuts with shapes, swirls, and patterns; embellishing a series of faces with moustaches, beards, and expressions; and others. Designed to encourage artistic exploration and imagination throughout daily life, My Big, Crazy Drawing & Doodle Book is sure to engage creativity and expression at every level.
