I loved “Painting School” by Tanya Emelyanova, even as an adult. While the book is geared to elementary-aged kids, there is so much included in this book. From the color wheel, to paint types to different types of painting that create unique effects. There is so much for kids to learn about.
This is the perfect birthday gift for the aspiring young artist in your life. Get them this book, some paint, some brushes and mixed media paper and they should be able to create some very unique works of art in no time. I feel like the book is obviously written for kids, but the concepts are not “dumbed down” to their level. Ms. Emelyanova does an excellent job at communicating in a way a child can understand and connect with. This would also make for a great homeschool book for parents looking to teach their kids the basics of art and want kids to expand their creativity.
