For Children and Grown Ups Alike This book is designed for anyone from 5-105.
The aim is to aid the new artist by developing the key skills of the art of drawing. From easy step-by-step drawings with simple lines and circles, you, as a new artist, will learn to recognise the underlying shapes of objects. You can transfer this skill to more complicated shapes as your confidence increases. The book also introduces the vocabulary of art, such as ellipse, vanishing point and perspective, illustrated in an easy to grasp manner. At the end of each stage you are given the opportunity to put your new-found skills into action with a comprehensive drawing of all that you have learned in the previous chapter.
“Such an original book! It helps children who are just beginning to learn to draw, I also recommend it to any parent or grandparent who has been laughed at for their hopeless attempts at drawing people or animals!” Tammy Barclay - Eden Project
