Susan Schwake’s “3D Art Lab for Kids” hits Iranian bookstores
TEHRAN – A Persian translation of “3D Art Lab for Kids: 32 Hands-on Adventures in Sculpture and Mixed Media” by Susan Schwake was recently published by Vijeh-Nashr Publications in Tehran.
The book was translated into Persian by Jamal Akrami and Mina Mani.
The book encourages artistic spirit in children with 36 kid-friendly art projects made from paper, clay, textiles, sculpture and jewelry. Each project is inspired by the work of a distinguished artist and is illustrated with step-by-step color photographs of the process as well as finished samples and variations.
Colorful photos illustrate how different people using the same lesson will produce different results, illustrating how the lesson brings out each artist’s personal style. On-site visits to the workshops of an established potter, goldsmith, jeweler, and sculptor illustrate first-hand accounts of their creative processes.
“3D Art Lab for Kids” is the perfect book for creative families, friends, and community groups, and works as lesson plans for both experienced and new art teachers. Children of all ages and abilities can be guided by adults and will enjoy these engaging exercises.
The popular “Lab for Kids” series features a growing list of books that share hands-on activities and projects on a wide range of topics, including art, astronomy, clay, geology, math and even how to create your own circus, all written by recognized experts in their field.

Labs can be used as one-on-one projects or as part of a one-year experiential learning program. Activities are open-ended and designed to be explored over and over again, often with different results. Designed to be taught or guided by adults, they are rewarding for a range of ages and skill levels.
