Understand the science of the world around you by making art

Does the topic of colour make you feel blue? This book will help you to work like a scientist: testing ideas, making investigations and doing experiments. But you’ll also be an artist, working with colour to discover how the eye perceives different wavelengths. Let’s mix some colours!

Science Makes Art skilfully blends science theory with fun art projects to encourage learning and creativity. It’s the perfect series to engage young scientists and artists, introducing them to key science principles and encouraging reluctant readers.

Using materials from around the home, make art projects such as:

– Rainbow art

– Colour spinners

– Leaf collage

– Camouflage art

– Tie-dye fun

Ideal for readers age 8+.

Hilary Devonshire (Author)

Hilary Devonshire has written books for young children on a number of different subjects, ranging from science to arts and crafts.

Ali Ardington (Illustrator)

Ali Ardington is a children’s book illustrator, designer and author from Oxfordshire. Her childhood was spent with either her nose in a book, or a pencil in hand creating funny monsters that could gobble up her twin brother. Her love for illustration and reading led her happily into children’s publishing and she now works on a wide range of books, from picture books to non-fiction and novelty. As busy as she is, juggling kids, spaniels and life, she still always finds time to doodle the odd monster eating brother, for old times’ sake.
