Introducing a compelling new activity for crafters and artists, doodlers and coloring book enthusiasts of all ages. Paint by Sticker includes everything you need to create twelve vibrant, full-color "paintings." The images--including sunflowers, a fox, a hummingbird in mid-flight, two boats on the water--are rendered in "low-poly," a computer graphics style that creates a 3-D effect. As in paint-by-number, each template is divided into dozens of spaces, each with a number that corresponds to a particular colored sticker. Find the sticker, peel it, and place it in the right space. Add the next, and the next, and the next--it's an activity that's utterly absorbing as you watch a "painting" emerge from a flat black-and-white illustration to a dazzling image with color, body, spirit. The pages are perforated for easy removal, making it simple to frame the completed images.
Paint by Sticker is a compelling new activity for crafters and artists, doodlers and coloring book enthusiasts of all ages. Masterpieces encourages everyone to channel their inner da Vinci and create twelve iconic works of art. Paint by Sticker Masterpieces includes everything you need to create twelve vibrant, full-color "paintings"--the stickers, the templates, the intuitive directions. The works include The Birth of Venus, by Sandro Botticelli, The Creation of Adam, by Michelangelo, Mona Lisa, by Leonardo da Vinci, Girl with a Pearl Earring, by Johannes Vermeer, Napoleon at Saint-Bernard Pass, by Jacques-Louis David, The Great Wave off Kanagawa, by Katsushika Hokusai, Houses of Parliament, Sunlight Effect, by Claude Monet, Still Life with Apples and a Pot of Primroses, by Paul Cezanne, Dance at Bougival, by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Bedroom in Arles, by Vincent van Gogh, Breezing Up (A Fair Wind), by Winslow Homer, and the stunning study in color, Flaming June, by Frederic Leighton. The cardstock pages are perforated for easy removal, making it easy to frame the completed images.
Designed for children ages 5 and up, Paint by Sticker Kids uses the same low-poly process to render and convert an image, but simplifies the process for younger artists. The templates are larger and divided into fewer spaces; the stickers are also larger, and more colorful. The result is magical, but just requires a little less dexterity (and time). New for this season is Under the Sea, a Paint by Sticker journey into the world beneath the waves. Kids will create a dolphin, a shark, an octopus, and other denizens of the watery world. The card stock pages are perforated so kids can remove them easily and display, or share, their finished works of art.

This groundbreaking work consists of hand-colored, life-size prints, made from engraved plates measuring around 39 by 26 inches (99 by 66 cm). This is the first of seven volumes. Audubon identified 25 new species over his career and is known for portraying animals in their real-life habitats. In contrast to other wildlife artists of his day, Audubon painted animals as if caught in motion—particularly feeding, hunting or escaping predators. The seven-volume Birds of America includes images of six now-extinct birds: the Carolina parakeet, passenger pigeon, Labrador duck, great auk, Esquimaux curlew and pinnated grouse. Nearly all later ornithological works were inspired by Audubon's artistry and high standards, and Birds of America is considered one of the greatest examples of book art. Numerous parks, towns and other places are named in his honor.
