About Lots of Lovely Art Beautiful Bugs
Love them or hate them, creepy crawlies are everywhere! In these creative projects, inspired by artists old and new, we look at how to create a wall of recycled bugs with the artist Jennifer Angus, painted butterflies with Damien Hirst, snail drawings and shapes with Henri Matisse, spider collages with Louise Bourgeois, dragonfly bug jars with Maria Sibylla Merian, cricket patterns with Émile-Alain Séguy and, finally, moth wings you can wear with Sarah Gillespie!
What is inside the Beautiful Bugs Box?
Ants, bees, slugs and worms – these tiny creatures all have a role to play in our environment. They work away quietly, breaking down leaves, churning up soil and pollinating plants. There are 40,000 different species in Britain alone.

Clear instructions on seven art projects, appropriate for children of any age (4+ years), with tips to tailor each project for younger children.
