I Am An Artist

4.31 based on 64 ratings & 7 reviews on Goodreads.com

Meet the boy who can't stop creating art! He loves colours, shapes, textures and EVERYTHING inspires him: his socks, the contents of the fridge, even his cat gets a new coat (of paint!). But there's just one problem: his mum isn't quite so enthusiastic. In fact, she seems a little cross! But this boy has a plan to make his mum smile. He's about to create his finest piece yet and on a very grand scale . . .

I Am An Artist by Marta Altés is a sharp, silly, fabulously funny book, which shows that art is EVERYWHERE!

I Am An Artist is a joyful ode to art and creativity.
There's a truly inspirational message in this gloriously anarchic picture book . . . would give Banksy a run for his money.
