This unusual art activity book featuring the deer introduces children to a variety of Indian art traditions. Through tracing, patterning and colouring the deer, children learn to explore each of the eight distinctive styles in the book – or just have fun. Children also get to experience and understand how art is as much about the imagination as it is about depiction. The book comes with clear and valuable information on Indian art traditions.
