Comments: An eye-pleasing, imagination-engaging work of art A unique and very highly recommended addition to any family, art department, or community library Art Instruction reference collection, Projection Art For Kids: Murals & Painting Projects For Kids Of All Ages by self-described "talent-free" artist Linda Buckingham is a compendium of twenty-one projects ranging from small-scale designs to full-scale wall murals that kids aged 10 and older can make on the wall of a nursery, daycare, classroom, or bedroom. Buckingham's projection technique will enable children to utilize a favorite photograph, slide, drawing, painting, clip art, cartoon, or logo in the creation of a memorable and eye-pleasing, imagination-engaging work of art.
