Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
This is a comprehensive adult level drawing course that focuses on the use of a pencil as the primary media. Pencils are the most basic of drawing tools, both economical and very portable. Pencils are not messy like many art materials, so they can be used anywhere at any time. Sample images of the variety of textures and strokes made by holding a pencil in different positions familiarizes the artist with the variety of marks common to this media. The drawing exercises are arranged by level of complexity, beginning with the simple shapes and advancing to objects with much greater variety in shape and texture. In three or four steps that include illustrations documenting the process, a drawing is completed. Instructions for drawing animals, landscapes, cars and human figures are all included. There are thirteen projects for the student artist to complete. The only drawback to this well written and documented book is its relatively small format. Reviewer: Kristin Harris
