Synopsis: Rangoli: An Indian Art Activity Book is a multicultural drawing book that introduces kids to the popular and versatile art form from India called rangoli. After a few initial step-by-step examples, the book offers a variety of designs with easy-to-follow colored lines to simplify, inform, and inspire. By using dot grids as the foundation for drawing - a technique that simplifies drawing and easily allows one to feel a sense of accomplishment - the book encourages children to unleash their creativity and explore possibilities by offering a variety of fun ways to use the grids. Rangoli is a great activity for kids that encourages concentration, creativity and exploration. The book has over 100 pages of designs and grids for exploring including geometric shapes, mazes, optical illusions, 3D images, nature, and more.

About the Author: Suma O Farrell was born in India but grew up in the United States. She has fond memories of traveling to India as a child, visiting with extended family, and learning about her culture. Having discovered rangoli during one of those trips, she soon found she enjoyed drawing and experimenting with it.

What she loves about rangoli is that you don t have to be an artist, or even an expert, to have fun with it and to feel good about your drawings. Through her award-winning book she's excited to share her love of rangoli with boys and girls everywhere. It's sure to light a spark of creativity in even the most reluctant of kids.

Suma graduated from University of California, Santa Barbara with Bachelor of Arts degrees in Prelaw and Political Science. She also earned a Masters degree in International Relations from Boston University, while studying at their Paris, France location. Rangoli: An Indian Art Activity Book is Suma's first book.
