MaryAnn Kohl Mudworks Giveaway--CLOSED

I am so honored to be able to offer this giveaway from my absolute favorite children's art author, MaryAnn Kohl.  Some of my early readers may remember a post where I praised her books.  She has written numerous art books for children, including Mudworks, Primary Art, Preschool Art and more.  I love her books because they are full of simple ideas using ordinary household items.  When I read about various art projects, I often hear myself saying things like, "That is so easy!"  "How cute!"  and, "How fun!" 

I also love that she stresses "it is the process not product" which shifts the focus of art to enjoying what happens while making art rather than the final product, which can open the doors to creativity.

My kids think that we do these projects for them, but truth be told, Mom is having just as much fun.  Children and adults love her projects!   Many times when friends are over and see various projects we have done, they compliment me on how creative I am.  But being the honest person that I am, I give all the credit to MaryAnn.

If you want to learn more about MaryAnn and her books, be sure to visit her sight at http://www.brightring.com/.  Here you can find out all about her books, free art activities, cool links and more.
Giveaway
CLOSED--winner is MaryAnn--Congrats!

MaryAnn Kohl ranks really high in my world.  So, you can only imagine my pleasure when she agreed to giveaway a book on my blog.  One of my lucky readers will win the new Mudworks bi-lingual edition from award-winning author, MaryAnn Kohl.  This book contains fifty of the "best squishy kid-tested projects capture the imagination of children, parents, teachers, and child-care professionals with English and Spanish translations on every page."  I have not read this specific book, but I am confident is is just as great as her other books.

Contest is open to US residents only.  Contest will end on March 17, 2010 at 11:59pm EST.  A winner will be chosen using Random.org.

I enjoyed crafty art, anything I could put my hands on that could be recycled into art I did. I also enjoyed Paper Mache projects

I loved ANY craft as a child - cutting up paper and fabric, watercolors, play dough... You name it, I loved it.

I did not consider myself a very good artist growing up but I did like watercolors and just plain coloring books & crayons. This looks like such a great boook. My daughter is 5 and she would love doing this as would I.

I loved to paint, especially those watercolor books where you just wet a paintbrush and the color magically appeared!
