{Art Together}

Hoorah! I’ve moved over to Payhip, which is taking care of VAT for their authors. Click on the individual zine links below to purchase any of the zines through their site.

{Art Together} is an e-zine designed to inspire confidence in adults to explore open-ended art-making alongside children. Comprehensive enough to be used as a homeschool art curriculum, each issue is full of activities, information, a featured artist and material, and friendly encouragement about how fun (and yes, easy!) it is for adults and kids to play with art materials together. Click on each issue’s link for more detailed information on its contents and how to purchase. Scroll to the end of this page for links to the posts in the {Art Together} series.

Links to reviews can be found here.
