New Book: Art For All Seasons



Back in 2005 I met Susan Schwake online. Susan is a fellow artist (one of her gorgeous pieces is pictured above), gallery owner, art teacher and author. I’ve had the great fortune to work with Susan in many capacities over the past 10 years, including in shows as a fellow artist and numerous time exhibiting in her spacious gallery in New Hampshire.

It’s really clear when you meet and get to know Susan that despite her own talent as an artist, her greatest passion is introducing the world of art-making to children. Susan began by teaching art classes to kids in the back of her gallery (she also teaches adults), and then over the past few years began publishing books with engaging and thoughtful art projects for kids. She started with Art Lab For Kids, then published Art Lab for Little Kids, and then 3-D Art Lab for Kids.

Most recently, she’s published Art For All Seasons: 40 Creative Mixed Media Adventures for Children Inspired by Nature and Contemporary Artists. I am so honored to be one of the artists whose work is featured in the book — one of the project is inspired by my hand lettered work!


Art for All Seasons is a handbook of mostly nature inspired art projects that can be explored with kids. This book is great for parents, teachers, grandparents or anyone wanting to make art with kids.  The book includes over 400 full-color photographs of projects and additional inspirational images of contemporary artists’ work.

You can watch a little video about this wonderful book below and purchase it here or wherever books are sold!

Have a great Monday, friends!
