Fred Babb's book "Go to Your Studio and Make Stuff" is an excellent source of paintings and essay about being an artist. I use them for inspiration and reflection in my classroom. I get many comments from my art students and the classroom teachers.
I am seeking to purchase a second of this book to keep intact so I can use the posters in my art classroom. This book gives a whimsical, colorful, poignant, yet serious look at Art from the viewpoint of Fred Babb. The illustrations are unique and portray the attitude of the artist well. A "must have" for anyone interested in making a comment on art for adults as well as children!
