Joy & Mess
A Handbook For Educators
Educating for a braver, brighter, more creative world is our vision at Big Fat Smile. We believe that creativity is not just the quality of thinking; it’s interactive, it’s social and it supports children to engage and learn.
This handbook is a fabulous resource for educators, helping to demystify the creative process. Representing the culmination of six years of work in over 40 educational settings, working with thousands of children – this key resource supports running creative classes and activities.
From the Strategy of the class to the Inspiration of the activity. From life drawing, printmaking and murals through to clay and environmental sculpture – educators will feel comfortable and empowered in their own artistic voice and skills base. We have intentionally designed this book as a ‘dip into’ resource that busy educators will love to use in their activities with children.
