Jean Van’t Hul, mother of two, lives with her family in the mountains of western North Carolina. She has been writing about children’s art and creativity on her blog, The Artful Parent, since 2008. A graduate of Wellesley College with a major in art history and studio art, Jean worked in various art and nonprofit fields before devoting her time to writing and raising kids. She loves to share process-oriented art, seasonal crafts, and joyful learning opportunities with her own daughters and through her children’s art groups, her magazine articles, and on her blog.

The author has long been an inspiration for me through her blog, but I love how well she speaks to me in this book. A lot of the ideas in the book have been mentioned in her blog over the years, but many are expanded upon and tied in with developmental phases in the book. None of it was earth shattering to me, but art with children has been an interest of mine for years now, and I have read a lot on the topic.
What makes this book special? Well, I appreciate that the author has a laid back attitude about art. I like that she is a busy mother like me. I appreciate the projects she suggests and more specifically the suggestions she makes for making time and space for art in the home. Its a very practical approach and the voice of experience shines through for me.
Being already firmly rooted in the ‘process over product’ camp when it comes to approaching artmaking with kids, I ordered this book out of curiosity. I wondered whether it reveal something new or end up at the bottom of a pile of books I had high hopes for but probably won’t read. Since I didn’t yet know her approach well enough before reading her book, I didn’t know what to expect.
To my surprise, Van't Hul found a friendly and approachable way to ignite NEW excitement about what I already believe. After reading the book I felt encouraged as a parent in my effort to fill my own family's life with art and creativity. Though only a few of her project ideas in the book were new to me, I found myself thinking of ideas I could try in my home and at work right away. So, this book works for me exactly as I want it to, and as I think it was designed: helping me re-see ways for me to be a supporter, co-learner and facilitator of learning and fun with my children and students.
I particularly love that Jean shares an easy example of what a day filled with art looks like from a practical scheduling point of view. I realized I've been making too big of a production of our art efforts which is exhausting to mommy and means we do it less often. She simplifies the approach so you're more likely to offer the opportunity for creativity as part of a normal routine. My girls are going to definitely benefit from having this book in our home!
to complete with your children and fill your home or classroom with beauty.
The best part is that they are all focused on the "process" not the final "product"
(a mantra a repeated daily in my classroom as an art teacher)
and her children's work reflects it through out the book.
Jean's book is a wonderful and rare departure from the usual craft books filled with
beautifully styled projects for children that were obviously created by an adult.
The artwork in her book is child made and genuine. This book is filled with beautiful photographs of the process and the children with their finished projects, my own daughters enjoy flipping through it as much as I do. This will be my new go to book recommendation for parents of young children - a perfect Mother's Day gift with some art supplies! It is every thing I hoped it would be, just like having a copy of her blog to flip through for fun ideas and inspiration.
