What do children hope to create when they put pencil to paper? An accurate likeness of the things they see, of course. With this imaginative, informative, and amply-illustrated guide to drawing, it's amazingly easy for kids to make those art dreams come true. After a brief overview of tools and materials, the entertaining hands-on activities begin with contour drawing techniques. With the help of lots of exercises, budding artists will learn the basic elements of shapes (lines, dots, circles) and see how to combine them to make familiar forms. They'll find out how to produce the illusion of volume with shading techniques; create perspective; accurately recreate landscapes, people, animals, and nature; develop interesting compositions; and more. Hardcover book with jacket measures 8 1/2 in. X 10 in., 112 pages all in color. Lark, 2005. ISBN 1579905870

Could you please tell me which ages would enjoy this book?- Asked by Lisa on 24-Nov-13
The starting age is 8 years old, but you know your child's abilities. If they are old enough to read, and comprehend what they are reading, then I would not limit it to 8 years old.- Answered by MisterArt on 25-Nov-13
