Sixty-five ways to be an artist through the world of Len Lye

This bumper art activity book brimming with ideas and inspiration has been developed by the team at the Len Lye Centre in New Plymouth, who work with the thousands of children who visit the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery every year and really understand how the great New Zealand artist Len Lye’s approach to art sets young minds abuzz and alive.

With 65 activities, and a running narrative thread about Lye’s fascinating life, it offers hours of fun to young readers, their whānau and teachers.
