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 Stamping Using Everyday Objects, foam, pencil erasers, and our own two feet make great stamps for games, cards, and more. (Ages 5 and up)
My Take on the Book
There are 16 very creative ideas to use with children in this book. All the activities use objects that you may have in your house already. The objects will be used for stamping and painting on cardboard, paper, or fabric. Once you see the objects used in the book , I am sure your mind will think of other stamping other possibilities.
Do you have cardboard tubes, sponges, balloons, leaves, Styrofoam, bubble wrap, q-tips and even your feet? Well, then you have so many avenues to stamp and make creative projects.
I think you and your children will enjoy not only the projects in this book but imagine creations you can develop too.
