Description of the Book from Amazon
This follow-up to the bestselling TheArt 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.
The publisher was kind enough to provide me with a copy of this book to review. All opinions are my own and honest.
Stone Painting for Kids is a beautiful and inspirational book for kids young and old. There are many inspirational designs as well as games you can create. Some of the designs are a bit more geared to older children and adults that can follow the directions but there are definitely some that younger children can do on their own or with some guidance. I do wish there were more specific instructions for some of the designs but for the most part I found it easy to follow. The photos are amazing and very inspiring to look at. My day job is as a kindergarten teacher and I look forward to using some of these designs and tips to inspire my students to paint some of their own stones this spring.
