Have fun making collage animal artworks using the simple stencils and patterned papers.
This ingenious and charming activity book makes it possible for anybody to create colorful animal collages. Young artists tear apart decorated sheets of patterned paper, either their own or those found in the back of the book, paste them onto blank cards, also provided, and then slip them into the book's cleverly designed paper pockets with eight different animal-shaped windows, including a roaring lion, a splashing hippo, a colorful toucan, a trumpeting elephant, a snapping crocodile, a naughty monkey, a dashing bear, and a group portrait!
“Beautifully designed and thoughtfully produced - Paper Zoo is sure to encourage the inner artist in any child.”
Kids’ Book Review
“È il sogno di tutti i bambini: un libro tutto da ritagliare e reincollare! Un albo pieno di colore e un invite alla creatività, per creare uno zoo davvero speciale.”
“Se non sapete come staccare gli occhi di vostro figlio dall’ennesimo videogioco o cartone animato del momento, fategli trovare in camera il nuovo libro di Oscar Sabini Paper Zoo e vedrete che nel giro di pochi secondi ne verrà catturato.”
On Printed Paper
“Teach children to create art using collage. Who doesn’t enjoy tearing and gluing?”
Watch paper come alive before a mini-film of Paper Zoo on The Guardian’s website.
Also find out how to create a toucan collage in this lovely lesson by Oscar Sabini.
