Children acquire skills in pencil drawing, scratch art, and markers. The art appreciation pages show how American artists like Remington, Audubon, Copley, and others used the elements of art and composition in their famous works, reproduced in full color. Technique pages demonstrate steps when working from direct observation, ways to add texture to a drawing, how to show form with lines, and other topics relevant to creating a drawing. The text is short and to the point and over 230 illustrations enhance visual understanding of the concepts. The content and conversational tone is perfectly suited to the age level. The book provides lessons for the completion of sixty-eight finished drawings that are both original and entirely the child’s own.
