Discover a new meaning for finger painting by following these easy instructions: Press your ink-stained finger onto construction paper, then add extra lines and squiggles to transform the ovals shapes into aliens, monsters, an over-sized crab or more creatures. You’ll see all of these in this 128-page art book, one of three in a series from the illustrator who designed the 50th anniversary stamps for the Royal Shakespeare Company. Then create your own stencils, design your own images on practice pages and learn more techniques for making artwork that not only satisfies kids’ creative side but encourages them to develop a personal style as unique as the arches, loops and whorls in their fingerprints.
