Don’t disregard the doodle!
With this imaginative, informative, and amply-illustrated guide to drawing, it’s amazingly easy for kids to enhance their basic drawing skills to produce artist-caliber work in no time.
After a brief overview of tools and materials, the entertaining hands-on activities begin with contour drawing techniques. Many detailed exercises aid budding artists in learning the basic elements of shapes (lines, dots, and circles) and see how to combine them to make familiar forms. They learn how to produce the illusion of volume with shading techniques, create perspective, accurately recreate landscapes, people, animals, and nature, develop interesting compositions, and more.
