The Painting-In Book

28 Feb


The Painting-In Book by Anna Rumsby (Laurence King Publishing) is a thing of beauty. Part activity book, part painting workshop, each page teaches an easy to follow painting technique and provides a picture to complete. Whether it’s mixing and blending colours, finger painting, splatter painting, or experimenting with texture and movement, each picture will inspire children to experiment and be creative.

My 4 year old Chief Book Tester had a wonderful time mixing colours, experimenting with different painting tools and techniques and creating her own masterpieces.


The book has been thoughtfully designed and produced to make it easy to use. I particularly like the oversized (A3) pages, allowing little hands lots of space to experiment. The pages are made from thick paper which is lovely to paint on and can withstand a lot of water and paintbrush action. They are easy to pull out and only printed on one side so masterpieces can be easily dried and displayed.

Stylish, fun and easy to follow, The Painting-In Book is a wonderful way to introduce children to new painting techniques and to encourage them to explore their creativity.

Ideal for 3-7 year olds, you can get your copy here.
