Welcome to Bright Ring Publishing
Award-Winning Art Activity Books for Children
MaryAnn Kohl would like to welcome you to Bright Ring Publishing
and Bright Ideas for Learning!
Welcome to Bright Ring Publishing and author MaryAnn Kohl’s fun-filled world of process art! Crayons, fingerpaints, cookie sheets, clay, milk cartons, and music are among the many ingredients that go into our imaginative art projects for kids.
It is this process of exploring and creating, rather than the finished product, that is most important for young artists. We hope the art ideas in our art activity books for children will inspire all readers to carry art in their hearts as they grow and develop, for you are already great artists in every sense of the word!
I believe that art is an adventure and an exploration of materials and ideas. I like to say “Art is a Process, Not a Product”.
