Before our guest on this episode of Ready Set Draw! started making books for kids, he was an art teacher who made art with kids every day. Join author/illustrator Tim Miller and IZZY from Tim’s new picture book, IZZY PAINTS, to play a fun game Tim invented to make creating art more fun and less intimidating — its called the “How to make art when you don’t know what to make game”!
To play, you will need:
- paint brushes
- some paints
- a container of water
- some sheets of paper towel
- a mixing tray
- Oh, and make sure to wear a smock so you don’t get paint all over your clothes!
Tim and Izzy would love to see your creations! Ask a trusted adult to help you post what you create on social media (psst..it helps if you say please!) using hashtag #ReadySetDraw.
We’d love to add your artwork to the Ready Set Draw Art Gallery!
Post your paintings on our KidLit TV Facebook page OR use the hashtag #ReadySetDraw on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter so we can find you!
We can’t wait to see what you’ve made!
