I Love to Paint!
Creating with strings, fingers, rollers, straws, and other super techniques: no wonder this entry in Lark's fabulous new art series will have kids saying "I love to paint!"
It's amazing what even the littlest ones can achieve when they practice on projects that feel like pure fun--not work. And one look at these cheerful, kid-friendly activities will have youngsters begging for a brush and paper. With everything from landscapes to classic still lifes, there's plenty here to fill up an entire refrigerator gallery. While creating finished pieces that will brighten every parent's heart, budding painters will easily master such techniques as mixing colors, brushwork, and creating texture with sponging, ragging and spattering. Filled with plenty of practical tips, creative ideas, and beautiful hand-painted illustrations, I Love to Paint guides new artists through the entire process--and will have them returning again and again, finding new skills to master as they get older.
