Three-Dimensional Art Adventures: 36 Creative, Artist-Inspired Projects in Sculpture, Ceramics, Textiles, and More

Maja Pitamic and Jill Laidlaw. Chicago Review (IPG, dist.), $19.99 paper (144p) ISBN 978-1-61373-659-3
The team behind Modern Art Adventures returns with another excellent collection of art projects, this time drawn from 18 works of sculptural or otherwise 3-D artwork. Six chapters address sculpture, installations, ceramics, collage, and textiles; projects include Louise Bourgeois–inspired spiders made from clay and pipe cleaners, a pair of projects that riff on Boccioni’s Unique Forms of Continuity in Space, and a woven wall hanging that takes its cue from Bauhaus textile artist Gunta Stölz. Context about the artists and their movements is incorporated throughout. Like its predecessor, it’s a book that succeeds for its ambition and breadth as it helps brings art out of the museum and makes it immediate and relevant in the lives of readers. Ages 6–up. (Sept.)
