Overview

Celebrate kids and their special talents.

There's nothing kids like more than putting pencil, crayon, or chalk to paper and drawing their favorite things. But mastering technical skills isn't always easy for them. So visual artist and instructor Jennifer Lipsey has created an appealing new series that gently takes youngsters 4-to-8 beyond what they know--and this first entry introduces them to some very simple drawing basics. On the left page are hand-drawn how-tos, all in bright purple. On the right is the finished piece, with even more entertaining things to do. And the minimal text allows even pre-readers to follow the instructions easily. While children happily create great pictures of ice cream, dinosaurs, and bicycles, they're learning how to turn basic lines into shapes, construct accurately proportioned people and objects, capture silhouettes, and produce realistic three-dimensional effects.

I bought these originally for my nieces and nephews as they love to draw and are always asking how to draw this or that. But, As I looked through these books, I realized I could use these drawing and painting techniques for greeting cards, stationary headers, and gift tags. I recommend them to children and adults with a creative side:'

The first two books 'I Love to Draw' and 'I Love to Paint' are highly recommended. I have enjoyed these books over and over again with my two boys 'ages 8 and 9'. Great and easy to understand instructions. It has brought out the kid in me! I love learning new techniques and trying new things with various textures and paints. I can't wait to buy the rest of the series.

This book teaches fundamental drawing skills in a fun, instructive, and engaging style. It is the book I would have loved to have as a child learning to draw.

I find my daughter using this book entirely on her own. When she wants to draw, create a card or work on a project she goes right to it. Along with the other books in this great collection it meets my young artist right where she is.The techniques used are easy and the results are very realistic. Complete instructions in totally fun, kid-friendly language and illustrations has her continually going back , on her own, for more. We both love it!

The artist/author did an amazing job making this book instructional and fun. My children love the book and have gained confidence in their own artistic skills by using this excellent guide.

I gave this book to my 8 year old daughter because she loves to draw and color and paint. She is very artistic. The techniques are easy to follow and she loves this book!! More importantly, we have had a lot of fun drawing together :)

We bought this for our 7 year old granddaughter who is a huge dog lover! She is over the top about it and is already starting to use it!

My 7 year old son loves to draw! We have a few "how to draw..." books. This is our favorite! Examples and instructions are easy for his age. I even love to draw with this book! Great for extra special touches on birthday cards, etc.

I bought this book for my grand-daughter who is five years old. I thought it would be a great way to build her self esteem. However, I have drawn over 10 pages of art in two days. It was so easy and fun. I did not know I had it in me. We are both learning how to expand our horizons. Now, I am thinking of buying the book, "I Love to Paint." What a wonderful feeling of accomplishment. My family will be getting art for Christmas this year.

Great book for my 3 year old son. He already loves to draw and doodle, so this was a perfect way for him to be even more excited about drawing. I was thrilled with the book and look forward to buying the entire series.

Good introduction to drawing for young children. Shows how to take individual drawings and combine them to make a picture.

This book allowed my 5yr old grandson to expand his artistic abilities! He's been using it often. A very good book for budding artists.

My son is two and half years old. He just loves this book. He asked us to draw the picutures for him again and again. I would recommend this book to kids around 3.
