When the Art for Kids series debuted, Booklist enthusiastically named it "One of the Top Ten New Series in Nonfiction." Drawing in Color, the newest addition to the critically acclaimed collection, teaches children indispensable tricks and techniques for adding a rainbow of color to their work.
This book is an entertaining combination of practical information with fun, hands-on exercises, as budding artists see how easy it is to create original, vivid pictures using everything from colored pencils and markers to watercolor, pastel, and paint. Through activities and step-by-step how-to’s, kids explore perspective and composition, and illustrate multi-hued landscapes, people, animals, and more.
Author Kathryn Temple encourages her readers to draw both realistically and imaginatively, to add effects such as texture and proportion, and even to show movement and personality — all using a variety of media. She even includes color optical illusions. With 112 full-color pages to instruct, inspire, and delight, every child can develop more skill and an increased appreciation for art.
