Art for the Heart is a Girl Zone book. Featuring girls' own voices in Girl Talk sidebars, the Girl Zone series is a joyful, empowering and diverse collection of books that explore topics of interest and importance to girls and young women ages 9 to 12. When you imagine an artist, what do you see? Do you picture Picasso, Van Gogh or...yourself? Art Therapist Mary Wallace shows how anyone can be an artist. Through a series of projects, girls will explore and celebrate one of the most incredible creations in the universe -- themselves! Art activities include: Art Journal. Make a unique visual journal to hold all of your artistic ideas. My Studio. Use your imagination to create your own art studio: the perfect place for you to relax, think, dream, and create. A Quilt of Me. Create an abstract self-portrait with a quilt-style collage. Friendship Necklace. Celebrate friendship with this beautiful beaded necklace. Mandala. Get in touch with your spiritual side through the ancient art of the circle. Spiral Weaving. Express your positive energies in a colorful spiral design. Illuminated Manuscript. Decorate stories and poems using this medieval technique. Mary's clear writing, helpful tips, and carefully chosen activities are designed for any skill level. Comments from girls create a "chat room" feel, and colorful sidebars give additional information about art throughout the ages and from around the world.

I really enjoyed this book! It was filled with interesting facts and ideas, however if you are looking for a complicated book this is more of a "macaroni crafts" sort of book.
