Drawing Projects

An Exploration of the Language of Drawing

This thoughtful and inspiring volume provides both a commentary on leading contemporary practitioners and a "how-to" style approach to the art form, exploring drawing as the process of seeing made visible.

Drawing Projects celebrates the freedom of expression that drawing allows us, beginning as children. Drawing is revealed as a mirror to the process of looking — thereby a visual reflection of the person that created the image.

The book profiles 10 key artists and illustrators — revealing their working environments and practices — including Dryden Goodwin, Cornelia Parker, Claude Heath, William Kentridge, Keith Tyson, and others. Each artist comments on the value of drawing within his or her own work, opening up discussions on how they view life, art, and the story that is told when the two are combined.

Drawing Projects also includes 15 lessons for readers to work through at their own pace, including detailed tutorials and instructions. These projects go beyond basic mechanical skills to provide advice on the mental skills required to become proficient at drawing.

Authors — Mick Maslen and Jack Southern.

Paperback. 240 pages. 8½" × 10" (22 cm × 25 cm).
