What Darrell Wakelam doesn't know about art and 3D sculptures isn't really worth knowing! We are always looking for new, inspiring and innovative ideas for lessons and these are spot on. His detail and tips for how to achieve the best possible outcomes makes our art look like we are professionals! A must-have for any budding artist, teacher or art department.

This is such a fantastic book, and unlike any art I have ever come across before... I highly recommend this book to both teachers, parents and children of all ages who want to reignite their creative spark without lots of expensive materials and complicated instructions!
