This unusual art activity book featuring fish introduces children to a variety of Indian art traditions. Through tracing, patterning and colouring differently shaped fish and the water they swim in, children learn to explore each of the distinctive art traditions in the book – or just have fun. They 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.
