This book is currently on back order but will be coming in Spring 2023! Reach out for a waitlist to purchase when it arrives!
This has been my go-to guide for painting with children. I don't always use the wet on wet approach myself, but do enjoy the reminders of how wonderful colour theory can be to explore with children. - Erin Boniferro, Owner + Founder of Collage Collage
From the Publisher;
"When we paint with colors we should paint in such a way that we are conscious that we are calling forth life from what is dead."
A vital factor in a child's development is the stimulation of active imagination and creativity. Here are ideas for encouraging self-expression through watercolor painting.
Essentially practical, this book is based on Goethe's color theory and shows that painting with children is more than just a form of self-expression. Müller encourages and attempts to understand children's fantasies through their artwork.
This guide for parents and teachers to painting with watercolors covers preparation, color-stories and poems, painting moods of nature and the seasons of the year.
