This book is addressed to parents, educators and teachers and accompanies all steps of the work from preparation to the implementation of different techniques with the help of little poems to the finished picture. When they bring these pictures home with them, parents are often at a loss: what are these colourful blobs, clouds, shapes? Why can we not see objects? This book gives basic information about this kind of painting and its educational importance. The greater part of the workbook, however, is a precise instruction on how children can paint with watercolours, what preparations are necessary (type of colours, painting grounds etc.) and how painting should be accompanied by stories and colour stories.
