A beautiful hand-crafted picture book that will inspire and encourage children to create art using everyday objects from the natural environment.
Who needs paint, paintbrushes and paper to create art? Not anywhere artists when there are sticks, stones, sand, mud and clouds around, waiting to be used! This story follows an anywhere artist, a creative little girl’s artistic adventures as she makes art anywhere and with anything. Watch as she creates vivid creatures in the forest, at the beach, after the rain and in the sky. Through this visual treat, children will be inspired to make art out of anything because sometimes imagination is the best tool.
