Carving for Kids by Robin Edward Trudel
Book DescriptionThe simple and beautiful art of woodcarving is adapted for children of all ages in this introduction to coaxing shapes and figures from solid blocks of wood. Requiring only a few tools and some inspiration, the projects in this collection are perfectly suited to building the skills it takes to work with wood. Safety and adult supervision are emphasised, but children will be able to complete the age-appropriate designs all by themselves. The graded projects range from carving a name stamp - for the youngest woodworkers - to carving a face - for teenaged craftspeople. The book also touches on computer-aided pattern-making, teaching children who face learning challenges, and methods for instructing kids of each age group - from elementary through high school. With its quick results and cumulative skill-building, learning to carve fosters hand-eye co-ordination and confidence as young carvers turn out unique handicrafts.
