ART & CREATIVITY: MY STENCIL KIT BY HERVÉ TULLET
Hervé Tullet is the author of more than 75 internationally acclaimed children’s books, including Press Here, Mix It Up!, The Game of Light, The Game of Shadow and The Big Book of Light.
All his books seem to take the concept of reading to a new level.
If you have been reading this blog for some time, you know that I am a huge fan of this bestselling illustrator and bookmaker!
I love how he teaches young minds to think independently and imaginatively! And My Stencil Kit (edited this year by Thames & Hudson) is no exception.
My Stencil Kit combines a large -format colourful art pad with 6 durable stencil boards, which feature over 200 stencils to trace!
The stencils range from flowers, grass and tress to mountains, suns and streams, to cars, rockets and planes to giraffes, roosters, snails and more.
This ingenious book is a fantastic way for pre-school and school-aged children to discover the joys of drawing and tap into their own imaginations.
The stencils allow children to quickly master the basics of line, colour and shape, and develop their understanding of symbols and their representations.
I really like that this children’s stencil kit encourages children to express themselves with art, and be more imaginative by incorporating abstracted stencils within their own design. Kids can draw, colour and create their own story. It is a truly inventive art book suitable for ages 5+!
