Crafty Surprises to Hide in Plain Sight
Marthe Jocelyn

Sneaky Art is a guide to creating joyful art for public spaces – surprise people with an unexpected creation that will make them smile. The author makes it clear that the work is supposed to be “fun, removable, and promote happiness.” The 24 projects include “Teensy-Weensy Washing Line” made using string, tiny clothespins, and hand-drawn miniature clothing placed across the door of a washer or dryer. Surprise someone with the “Cup Dangler,” a gummy fish hanging from a bent paper clip, to be hooked on the rim of a mug. Bright photos and easy-to-follow instructions make this appealing book a delight for ages 8-10.
