Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The balance of detailed text and color images is visually appealing. Children will enjoy honing their observation skills as they practice using color in new ways." –School Library Journal
School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up—This heavily illustrated guide encourages budding artists to learn some basic skills and decide what works for them. Before jumping into project ideas, Temple explains some drawing tools and the basics of color theory. She provides clear, step-by-step instructions while reminding children that there is no right or wrong way to draw. Then, in nine chapters that each cover a particular technique or type of subject ("Drawing in Perspective," "Drawing Animals"), readers are encouraged to sketch objects found around the house, a cat, a Ferris wheel, and even a person. Projects use a variety of mediums, including colored pencils, markers, and oil pastels. The balance of detailed text and color images is visually appealing. Children will enjoy honing their observation skills as they practice using color in new ways.—Lisa Glasscock, Columbine Public Library, Littleton, CO
