Featuring the insights of 15 current and former instructors of the Art Students League of New York, this stunning volume reassesses the art of drawing not as a technique, but as the essential grammar of all visual thinking.
In an illuminating introductory essay, James Lancel McElhinney punctures the myth that learning to draw is something for experts only, and presents methods for making, appreciating, and teaching drawing. The 15 contributors then offer a broad range of stylistic approaches and methodologies, accompanied by examples of their own and their students' artwork.
A final section of basic exercises, along with information on materials, techniques, and resources, completes this inspirational study.
