The channel brings a lively new weekday series — MISTER MAKER, that’s all about being creative and having fun.  This August, let your creative juices flow with MISTER MAKEReveryday at 8:30 A.M. and repeat telecast at 11:30 A.M. only on Discovery Kids. The channel introduces kids to the pleasures of making new things.

 

The possibilities are endless when it comes to art and crafts.  Set in a magical studio made of larger than life arts and crafts materials, MISTER MAKER combines live action, graphics and a variety of animation techniques to bring the world of art to life in a modern, fresh and ground-breaking way.

 

MISTER MAKER is an engaging character who acts as a catalyst for all the big ideas and brilliant arty techniques within the show and encourages the audience to have a go themselves. And with the help of a magic table-top and his doodle-drawers, he shows just how it’s done.

Kids will learn a host of exciting and innovative ‘make and do’ techniques — such as how to paint with the edge of a cardboard box, make a dog out of an egg-box, use rubbish to make a 3D painting and a multitude of other techniques. And then ‘The Shapes’ come on to do their dance and present their shape puzzle. How many triangles are hidden in the picture of the pyramid? What picture are the animated circles going to make?

This unique and innovative show will inspire kids everywhere to have a go at art.
