‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Child Art is based on Indian art teacher Tarit Bhattacharjee’s successful teaching methods with simple everyday materials such as newspapers, clay, sand and even vegetables. This is an ideal art activity book for teachers and parents as it provides over 75 innovative exercises suggesting creative ways of playing with design, colour, texture, form, composition and space.
What is unique is that it features actual work by children and draws on a wealth of Indian tradition. Child Art is an excellent resource for creative ideas and allowing children to experiment with their own ideas.
