For today's giveaway, two winners will receive a
copy of Fotoplay! by M.j. Bronstein. Fotoplay provides
visual and written prompts and the reader
creates their artistic response!
A wonderful book for children of all
ages, it is filled with page after page of charming
prompts that had me smiling just imagining
all the possibilities.
"A prompt is an armature on which to
hang one’s own designs."
Artist, photographer, and teacher, M.j. Bronstein came
up with the idea for Fotoplay! after seeing how much
her own students enjoyed using her photographs
as creative prompts.
To try it for yourself, here are
a few excerpts to print out and enjoy!
(click on each photo below to download)
"Puffy, Bootsie, and Gracie like crazy hats... So does Gail."
"Color these sailboats with the shades of a sunset. Add
some birds, flying high in the sky."
"There is something scary up on the hill."
On the author's website, This Playground, there
is a great article about using prompts here and
also more free pages to print and a gallery featuring
completed pages from the book. Check out the adorable
book trailer too! If you want to see your completed
pages in the gallery just send them to M.j. at firstname.lastname@example.org
and she will post them!
