We are living in a golden age of self-expression. The explosion of user-created content on blogs and social networking sites moved Time magazine to name "You" their 2006 person of the year. But while we may be spending a lot more time in virtual worlds, we have not lost the urge to make our physical world more meaningful. By leaving art and ideas in public places, you can affect someone's day--change their mood or their mind--and maybe even change the world in the process!

The Guerilla Art Kit shows how small artistic acts can start a revolution. Keri Smith, noted author of Living Out Loud and the blog Wish Jar Journal, uses her unique drawing and handwriting style to help anyone find and release their inner artist or activist. This visually exciting activity book--full of step-by-step exercises, cutout projects, sticker ideas, and more--has both fun assignments and handy tips to help you unleash your creative energy into the streets, where you can really make an impact. From the quick exercises--leaving books for strangers to find, chalking quotes on the sidewalk--to the more involved--making a "wish tree," guerilla gardening, or making your own stencils--The Guerilla Art Kit contains everything you need to put your message out into the world.


Keri Smith is an author/illustrator turned guerilla artist. Her books including Living Out Loud: Activities to Fuel a Creative Life and Tear up this Book! :The Sticker, Stencil, Stationery, Games, Crafts, Doodle, And Journal Book For Girls.
