Stone Painting for Kids: Designs to Spark Your Creativity

by F Sehnaz Bac (Author)

Reading Level: 4th – 5th Grade
Winner of a Bronze 2018 Moonbeam Children's Book Award! This follow-up to the bestselling The Art of Stone Painting offers a kid-friendly version of an engaging activity that helps promote creativity. Popular stone artist F. Sehnaz Bac, a seasoned archaeologist who markets her painted Sassi dell'Adriatico (Stones of the Adriatic) on Etsy, presents step-by-step instructions for simple projects, accompanied by full-color photographs. Her introduction explains how to find and choose stones, which kinds of materials and tools are safe for kids to use, how to set up a workspace, simple techniques, and other helpful tips. A splendid variety of patterns begins with illustrations of basic shapes and designs for human figures and faces, animals, numbers and letters, and natural motifs -- flowers, trees, and stars. Other activities include painting stones for games such as tic-tac-toe, chess, and dominoes. Kids will learn lettering techniques for writing names and words on pebbles and how to design holiday-themed decorations. They'll also discover how to assemble multiple stones for picture-making and story-telling. "This is a nice over-sized book. The pictures are beautiful, simple, and large so you can easily see the art work to copy it. Great book, great ideas, tons of great fun!" --Wall-to-Wall Books
