123 I Can Paint! (Starting Art)

Irene Luxbacher makes painting look as easy as 1-2-3 in this wonderful addition to the Starting Art series. By breaking down the fundamentals of painting and colour theory into easy-to-digest painting projects, Luxbacher shows kids that anyone can paint an underwater scene, a field of flowers, busy city streets or fireworks — even parents and teachers!
