In this unique craft book, outdoor enthusiast and former teacher Ellen B. Senisi encourages children to create art with colored objects found in nature. In alternating spreads, she shows the beauty of each color, its special significance to the plant and animal world, and related crafts. Kids can put away their store-bought supplies-here are more than a dozen projects, all made with plants, fruits, and other natural objects that they can find in yards, parks, gardens, or the grocery store. Children will discover that green leaves make printed patterns, spinach can be simmered into ink, certain flowers and berries work like paint, and more. Nature inspires so much of art. In this book it provides the materials, too. For young artists, this is a new, intimate way to think about color and its essential role in nature and art.
