Painting by Deri Robins

This title helps you follow in the footsteps of the masters as you learn many exciting painting tricks, from abstract art to watercolours and splatter techniques with 'Painting', part of the 'Learn Art' series from QED. You can even make your own frames and hang those masterpieces on the wall! It includes a wide range of exciting and imaginative projects to help young children master different art and craft techniques such as printmaking, collage, painting and stencilling, cartooning and model-making. It features inspiring ideas that encourage children to experiment with different materials, such as paint, coloured tissue paper and papier mache. It offers clear, easy-to-follow instructions with step-by-step photographs that teach basic skills. It draws inspiration from different cultures and traditions, such as ancient Aboriginal handprints, African masks, medieval stained-glass windows, Chinese calligraphy and Faberge eggs.
