Within each chapter, young artists are guided through the artistic process with a brief introduction to each respective tool or medium. From there, children will learn helpful techniques for employing the tool or medium via a selection of fun and unique step-by-step art projects. Tons of art tips are sprinkled throughout for a comprehensive learning experience, while an interactive format, including perforated practice pages that can be easily removed and displayed in any home or classroom, engages children for hours of creative fun. Parents will appreciate this book for its rainy-day activity appeal. Art teachers and homeschool parents will appreciate it as an educational resource; while art and craft enthusiasts will love it as an inspiring gift for the artists in their lives. Whether an easy monoprint made with washable markers or a watercolor fish painted using the wet-on-wet technique, children everywhere will be delighted with the fun and creativity this book has to offer them.
