My Christmas Art Class

by Nellie Shepherd

Are you looking for something BIG to do for Christmas? Maybe you are a teacher looking for a group project, or just have a lot of kids to keep amused. Perhaps your child is ambitiously creative and is looking for a sustained project, something they can really get their teeth into?

My Christmas Art Class

My Christmas Art Class is for you then. Written by Nellie Shepherd, actress and art teacher it is choc full of big things to make for Christmas. Shepherd’s artistic philosophy is simple - there are no rules except have a go and have fun.

There are instructions on how to make a big cuddly snowman toy out of a pillowcase, a huge heart collaged with kidney beans and chickpeas (which would also make a great project for Valentine’s Day too) and a complete star costume complete with hat and foot decorations. The Christmas skittles set could be made one per child, and an absolutely enormous pop-up Christmas card would make a wonderful wall display.

The book is sprinkled with charming quotes from toddlers and includes a section of fabulous gift wrapping ideas.

Lavishly illustrated, you will get into the festive spirit just reading the book. Most ideas could easily be scaled down - or up if your children really wanted a challenge, and is the perfect book for anyone who is looking for creative Christmas ideas.
