Great news this week when Outset’s best-selling children’s author, Lexi Rees, discovered one of her activity books has been added to The School Reading List. It was praise indeed to see her book, Scavenger Art, added to the list alongside well-known authors, such as Julia Donaldson, Allan Ahlberg, Andrea Beaty, Kari Herbert, David Hockney, Akwaeke Emezi and Tracy Chevalier.
Scavenger Art is perfect for children aged six to twelve and can be used at home or at school – maybe inside on a rainy day, or outside searching. In a classroom setting it can be scaled up for use by a whole class, or on the school grounds. The book includes 52 scavenger hunts, with guides on how and where to look for items to draw, together with hints on perspective, the use of lighting, shape and colour.
Scavenger Art is available online, or from your local bookstore – check it out now to get those young creative minds buzzing!
