Product Details


Praise for Mess

Mess is incredible and offers a fun and safe form of stress relief through destruction. It’s damn liberating.” —Wanders in Whim

“Keri Smith’s books encourage freehand art exploration and teach artists that accidents and experimentation can yield amazing and unexpected results.” —The Carle Museum

“Two things I love about Keri and her approach: 1) Keri is permission: to break away from my usual linear self and send it on vacation. 2) Keri is encouragement: to create what she calls a ‘habit of experimentation’ which can be so beneficial in living a full, creative life (and in learning new ways to tell our stories with words and photos).” —Ali Edwards, author of Life Artist

“Once you get going, the book really becomes a source of liberation; it frees you to make a mess, stop thinking about the outcome and just enjoy the process. Let go. See what happens. And enjoy your complete disregard for the outcome. A great family activity.” —Family First

Praise for Keri Smith

“Keri Smith may well be the self-help guru this DIY generation deserves.” —The Believer

“A conceptual artist and author luring kids into questioning the world and appreciating every smell, texture and mystery in it.” —TIME Magazine
