Publisher Comments:

We are living in a golden age of self-expression. The explosion of user-created content on blogs and social networking sites moved Time magazine to name "You" their 2006 person of the year. But while we may be spending a lot more time in virtual worlds, we have not lost the urge to make our physical world more meaningful. By leaving art and ideas in public places, you can affect someone's daychange their mood or their mindand maybe even change the world in the process!

The Guerilla Art Kit shows how small artistic acts can start a revolution. Keri Smith, noted author of Living Out Loud and the blog Wish Jar Journal, uses her unique drawing and handwriting style to help anyone find and release their inner artist or activist. This visually exciting activity bookfull of step-by-step exercises, cut-out projects, sticker ideas, and morehas both fun assignments and handy tips to help you unleash your creative energy into the streets, where you can really make an impact. From the quick exercisesleaving books for strangers to find, chalking quotes on the sidewalkto the more involvedmaking a "wish tree," guerilla gardening, or making your own stencilsThe Guerilla Art Kit contains everything you need to put your message out into the world.

Book News Annotation:

Smith (Living Out Loud: Activities to Fuel a Creative Life, 2003) introduces street art as a way to foster connections with the natural world, community, and one's inner activist. She presents creative exercises on exploring what you want to say and conveying messages via such media as stencils, knitted tags, and randomly-placed postcards. The spiral-bound toolkit includes templates, a glossary, bibliography, and websites. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
