Art Techniques for Teenagers

UK Writer and Illustrator Teal Triggs, illustrated by Daniel Frost The School of Art Allen & Unwin 2015, $32.99hb 96pp ISBN 978 1 8478 0611 6 Themes: Art techniques

In this handsome and large book with its zany illustrations, the five 'professors' at The School of Art set out, in 40 ‘lessons’, to give the reader the skills to create some great pieces of art of which they will be proud.  Basic design elements, experimenting with ideas and materials and how to use the new skills are covered in a fun and practical way.

A great book to whet the appetite of a student who is not quite sure whether they are really interested in art  - or not. It could also be used successfully in a classroom setting. 

Year 8 up/ Age 12 up

Professor Teal Triggs is an educator, historian and writer whose research focuses primarily on graphic design history, design research methods, self-publishing and feminism. She has led interdisciplinary research teams within the broader field of information environments exploring the role of information in public spaces and community-based learning.
