This Book Thinks You're an Artist is one of the rare books on the market to combine art history with practical activities on the page. It asks the reader to imagine their eccentric-artist alter-ego before working through six key topics: painting, sculpture, illustration, decorative art, photography and contemporary art. Each spread centres on a different technique for producing a piece of art, and relates the activity back to a famous artist or movement in a light-hearted and playful tone. Activities include making a Bruegel circus, playing a Surrealist game, selling a scribble for a million pounds and painting your face like a Russian Futurist. A section of paper-based crafts at the end of the book includes a kit to build a camera obscura.
