Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Both authors are artists and teachers and their 'contemporary approach to contemporary drawing', both in the informality of the conversations and in the 'projects' themselves (the projects encourage various techniques and approaches), means Drawing Projects forms a particularly rich basis for developing an understanding of the medium…" Scottish Art News
Library Journal
This unusual volume profiles the working process of ten contemporary emerging and established artists working in the medium of drawing, with 15 related projects for the reader to work through.
