Baldwin refreshingly sees abstract art as a childlike craft rather than as a fine art. She first teaches the basic rules of design and composition, then sets free with paint, crayons, photos, fabric and wax. This unique volume removes the pomposity from art and restores the simple joy inherent to its creation. -- Library Journal, July 2009
