Drawing Textbook by Bruce McIntyre
Item # AV-101
Drawing Textbook is one of our customers’ favorite books for teaching children to draw!
I purchase a sketchbook and a set of drawing pencils or colored pencils for each child. Then I assign two or three of the easy little drawings per week. The drawings become more intricate as the lessons progress. Students learn about the elements of drawing: surface, size, surface lines, overlapping, shading, density, and foreshortening. We read the short paragraph about each example. Then we try to draw it several times for practice.
All ages though younger children will need more help-read the lesson and demonstrate the drawing.
