This is the ultimate beginner's guide to the importance of art, told in a way that will enchant children and engage their favorite adults as well.

Everyone tells children that art matters, but the truth is that very often it’s hard to know why. Museum visits can feel like a chore and memorizing the names of the famous artists is no fun. However, when presented the right way, art has a deep capacity to improve our lives and offer us a sense of joy and mental well-being.

What Adults Don't Know About Art is a different sort of introduction to art. In a tone that’s friendly, informative, and at times, downright silly, this book explains how art can fit into anyone's life. We learn where the impulse to make art comes from, what art to look at in certain moods, how to visit a museum without getting bored and how we can become experts in art simply by decorating our rooms.

Shipping & Returns

Our products ship through a privately owned climate-controlled warehouse in San Diego, California.

We offer a variety of shipping methods from budget-friendly to price-doesn’t-matter. You can compare estimated costs and transit times once you begin the checkout process and enter your shipping address. Carrier options may vary based on your destination.

We strive to pack and ship all items within 24 hours of each order (Monday through Friday). However, we are a small team so during peak holiday season we kindly ask that you allow 3-5 days for your items to be sent on their way. Every box shipped from Art of Play is expertly packed by actual human beings (you can see their names written on your package slip). Everyone in our warehouse is paid a fair wage and treated with respect.

Return Policy

We will gladly offer a refund or store credit in exchange for any items returned within 30 days of the original order, as long as the items are still sealed in new condition. We cannot accept returns of opened or used items. Return shipping is the responsibility of the customer.
