Read an Excerpt

The novice with a musical instrument is frequently taught to play simple melodies as quickly as possible, well before he learns the most elemental scratchings at the surface of music theory. The resultant self-satisfaction, pride in accomplishment, can be a significant means of providing motivation. And all from mimicking an instructor's "DO-as-I-do..."
Mimicry is prerequisite for developing creativitity. We learn the use of our tools by mimicry. Then we can use those tools for creativity. To this end I would offer the budding artist the opportunity to memorize or mimic (rotelike, if you wish) the making of "pictures."

    The Best; The Easiest!

    Couldn't draw my way out of a paper bag despite years of trying. I bought several of the Draw 50 series and they are, by far, the easiest way to learn to draw. I have seven of the titles and will be buying a few more this week. I also bought 'Drawing With Lee Ames'.

    Fantastic for learing to draw

    I bought this book for my 8 year old at Christmas. He is showing an interest and talent in drawing. This book shows great instruction for a beginning drawer. I even tried a few and enjoyed it. I look forward to trying some of the other different books by this illustrator.
