Synopsis

Featuring six stained glass windows from around the world, this book explores stories told through the art form, from Greek myth in Patrick Reyhtiens' Hercules and the Boar to biblical tale in The Adoration of the Magi. Each stained glass window is looked at in detail, and a more general introduction to the medium provides historical context.

Fun, step-by-step projects show children how to create their own stained glass windows, using the techniques of the art form. Learn how to design a colourful candle holder and make a window hanging!

The Stories in Art series explores the narratives told through different art mediums. A great introduction to the history of art for children at Key Stage 2.
