“Using the materials and processes that Dr. Peck presents in her book, teachers can maintain the integrity of their art programs on limited budgets while simultaneously giving life to worn and weary treasures. I recommend Artistic Crafts for parents and children [as well as] art educators. The numerous illustrations of colorful works produced by Judith’s students will inspire creativity in artists of all ages.”  Kim L.
