This is the first book in the Artistic Pursuits series and is recommended for students in K-3. I think you could easily stretch it to Year 4, especially if you're just starting to teach art, as it's not just art instruction but art appreciation. It's non-consumable and a list of easy to obtain materials is given at the beginning of the book (soft pastels, watercolour crayons, construction paper & self-hardening clay, for example). I found the key to using the Artistic Pursuit books is to have all your materials available before you start. I leant that the hard way - so frustrating to find you've run out of tin foil or you find the last person to use the paintbrushes didn't rinse them and they're now as hard as pig iron.
I'd really like to give this book to a family who will get good use out of it, so if you have a couple or more children in the younger grades and would like this copy, please leave me a comment here and/or on my facebook page telling me why you'd like to win it or how you would use it.
