About the Book
Art doesn't have to be an expensive production of paints, brushes, and other supplies. When it comes to encouraging kids' creativity, the everyday items we have around the house can be just as good as fancy art studio materials. Barron's new Art Painting series shows children just how easy it is to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary with dozens of really unique and totally do-able projects using supplies that can be found in the kitchen, pantry, or linen closet! With a little imagination, simple items like coffee, sponges, bottle caps, aluminum foil, old newspaper, and even cotton swabs can be used to create a masterpiece! Clearly illustrated, step-by-step instructions include material lists, advice for preparing the workspace, and notes for when an adult's help is needed. Endless inspiration for aspiring young artists as well as teachers and parents! In Art Painting with Everyday Materials,, painting with milk, shaving cream, or coffee sounds bizarre, but these projects demonstrate just how much fun it can be. (Ages 5 and up)

Art Painting with Everyday Materials

My Take on the Book
You and your child can paint on any surface you have around the house . You can paint on foil, paper doilies, stones, newspaper, and paper bags. A few of the projects in this book use pencils, colored pencils, felt tip markers, and crayons. The projects can be also used on graph paper and sandpaper.

I was impressed with the variety of the projects. You and your child can easily identify many projects to use in your special time together.
