This cute activity book has Lapis Lazuli and Peridot of Steven Universe giving you some pretty inventive ideas for making art. With adorably in-character comments from the Gems (and encouragement, of course, from toons of Steven popping up), young artists can take inspiration from these prompts. The book also touches on art concepts and the aesthetics of displaying art. Kids will find this cute and hopefully be inspired to try the activities.
