About Creative Creatures

Flawless art does not exist! Imperfect art is how creatures are created. Many children at the pre-school and elementary school age are discouraged from drawing or creating art. Most children believe their subject should be enthusiastically and evenly proportioned.

In this mysterious but interesting world, the reader becomes part of the author’s journey of creating unproportioned creatures with silly oddities. Though not an activity book, Creative Creatures craftily empowers children to create unique carnivalesque creatures in a playful space. This children’s picture book about art, does encourage creativity through the use of different art mediums including collage and recycled materials.

As a rhyming picture book as well, it can be a fun, lyrical way to acknowledge that it’s acceptable to make art in any method and with any result. It can be read in school libraries and used by home schooled children to encourage creativity. Art teachers can use Creative Creatures to facilitate lessons or as a student guide to explore creating during free art time.
