About the book

This book is a follow-up to the bestselling "Art of Stone Painting."  It is a book that will inspire, ignite imaginations, and cultivate creative thinking and artistic skills.  

The very talented author offers step-by-step instructions as to how kids successfully can choose some blank bland stones and turn them into works of art.  She explains how they can select the type and shape of stones needed, the paint and tools necessary and the best workspace in which to engage in this delightful activity.  She offers simple, understandable techniques to ignite minds and hearts thus becoming a master stone painter.  

She displays a wonderful gallery of patterns:  animals, human faces and bodies, numbers and letters, plus images found everywhere in nature.  She features how stone painting can be used to play games and for storytelling.  

The 96 page book is filled with amazing ideas that will get kids thinking, designing and kept very busy and happy.   It is a perfect introduction to this form of art and features bold, vibrant colours that kids will love working with (and adults too!).  I highly recommend this book.
