Art Project for Kids Involving Books
I found this really cool collaborative art project thought up by Jason Turner, a Canadian cartoonist. It works like this:
- Pick up any book and turn to page 100
- Now draw a picture of the scene described on that page
- Scan and submit to JasonTurner@JasonTurnerProject.com
- The Project is open to ALL!
This might be a really fun Book Club or summer activity for kids who love to draw. It would be really fun for them to see their artwork as part of a greater project!
The drawing above is from The Giver, which is an excellent Middle School book that is required reading at our Middle School for 7th grade. Check out his site for inspiration (The Page 100 Project List): http://www.jasonturnerproject.com/?p=98
