Taking a trip this summer? Why not preserve the memories of your travels in a creative, project-based way? Map Art Lab: 52 Exciting Art Explorations in Mapmaking, Imagination, and Travel is filled with plenty of intriguing labs that can do just that! Co-authored by siblings Linden McNeilly and Jill K. Berry, this book offers fifty-two well-planned innovative artistic projects, so many that you’re sure to find the perfect one to represent the joys of your summer excursions.
For instance, Lab 38 entitled ‘Magical Places’ (pg. 102-3) might be something you’d like to consider making if you’re taking a summertime trip of a lifetime. This lab is included in the Unit 5: Personal Map category. The example given is a graphic depiction of ‘The Beaches of My Childhood.’ It’s an awesome sequential display of seaside travels complete with street names, beach names, and a how-to-create illustration of an octopus and a pirate ship! (Nothing says summer fun like a seaside pirate ship.)
Consider Map Art Lab: 52 Exciting Art Explorations in Mapmaking, Imagination, and Travel as a resource for projects to creatively wrap up the family fun you will enjoy this summer – most certainly if pirate booty is in your future!
