A lively art book packed with clever ideas for simple projects drawing on the rich artistic tradition of peoples around the world. 'Art from Rocks and Shells' looks at the natural world around us, where there are many objects that inspire creative art and design. Not only patterns shapes and textures, but also the discarded objects which can be collected, protected and preserved. It presents a range of interesting projects using many natural materials including pebbles, feathers, flotsam and jetsam. Previously published in hardback by Hodder Wayland, it has clear and easy-to-follow instructions, colourful photographs and is perfect for supporting KS2 Art in the primary classroom.
