Product Description:

We have enjoyed drawing with Bruce McIntyre's step-by-step method and clear instruction. Drawing starts so simply that even the youngest students will be able to participate. Skills are mastered in a series of 222 drawing exercises that teach the seven basic principles of drawing: surface, size, surface lines, overlapping, shading, density, and foreshortening.

The best resource I know of for drawing, and it was only available new through you guys. The used copies online were much more expensive.

Learned a lot from this as a kid, and looking forward to going through it now with my son!

My uncle gifted me with this book when I was very young and learned techniques from just looking at the images provided. My perspective, foreshortening and shading skills were developed to a fairly decent level for a child. Drawing Textbook was my first exposure to drawing essentials. It's truly a great book - kind of "old school", but simple for a beginner draw-er to understand. Now I'm giving a copy t my great niece who is learning to draw.

I lost my old copy. It's an excellent drawing book and I saw definite improvements in my child's drawing as well as lots of interest in these lessons. And an older child could use this as an independent work assignment.

This is my favorite drawing textbook. I have used it for years with my older children and have always been amazed at how much their drawing skills were improved. This is my third time purchasing this book, as I have given the others away to help others develop their drawing ability.

I am ordering this wonderful treasure of a book for my grandkids. I homeschooled eight children from K-12 and put each one through this little book. It does not teach you to draw specific items as much as it lays a foundation for drawing anything well by using the 6 laws of drawing. I highly recommend it.

I loved teaching this approach to drawing with my four children. All of them gained invaluable skill: two continued on to study art at university and have become professional artists. Now I'm eager to share this marvelous method with my son-in-law; to give him the confidence that he too can draw with ease. Thank you, Bruce, and thank you Rainbow Resource Center for bringing us so much joy!

My sister used to watch him on our local tv station years ago. She had forgotten how he explained how to draw a scroll. Getting this book to jog her memory.

I had it before and lost it. I learned so much about drawing from this book! So I want to start using it again.
Doris V on Dec 29, 2018
I used this little book many years ago while homeschooling our girls. It was so good. Now our son is in need of instruction in the rudiments of drawing technique, and this came to mind. We are really looking forward to working with this again.
Kathleen Y on Dec 10, 2018
This is an excellent drawing tutorial, starting from the very basics and building little by little on what you have learned and practiced already.

I used this book through many years of homeschooling. This year I finish my teaching career and want to go back and study more on what interested me “in school”.
I’m so happy to find this book and so easily.
I thought there was a dvd that went along with it. If I remember right the kids and I watched it while practicing.
Can anyone help me on this??
Anyone remember.
A shopper on Feb 12, 2022
BEST ANSWER: As far as I know, Drawing Textbook does not have a DVD. Maybe look into "I Can Do All Things" by Barry Stebbing if a DVD component is important.
what supplies do I need to purchase with this?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I bought a drawing board for each of my kids and a stack of large blank white paper sheets ( all from Rainbow Resources). My kids use their regular pencils to do the drawings. No fancy or expensive art supplies needed for this outstanding program, and the results are incredible.

Excellent Value and Outstanding Approach to Drawing
For such a small price, this is a gem! I used it to educate all 8 of my children in how to express ideas accurately through drawing. I did so without having to be an artist myself. The author teaches the seven laws of perspective, position, and alignment through 37 lessons containing 6 drawings each. I had my kids copy them (not trace) M-Th, then reproduce them without looking on Friday. I ordered more of these for my grandchildren to learn from.

A great basic drawing foundation! Students gain confidence and skill in learning to represent objects 3 dimensionally. Good for all ages.
My favorite basic book on learning to draw three dimensionally. I've used it for years in homeschool drawing classes. I'm so glad it's still available! Mark Kistler expands on the instruction in the Drawing Textbook in his book Draw Squad, a fun and imaginative approach.

Loving this guide to drawing!
Everyone in our household, from PreK to adult, is loving this process. So simple and inexpensive, yet so necessary. I have spent far more on individual art lessons that accomplished far less.

Fabulous instruction
Simply the best art program I have ever seen. Nothing fancy, just fun, bite-sized, targeted lessons that teach essential, solid foundational drawing skills. The lessons are approachable, easily accomplished, super fun and the skills are built up in small, meaningful, manageable increments. My kids BEG to do art from this book every day. I find it easy to stay on track with the lessons because the results come fast and easily to my kids ( I suspect any person would find the same success following the program). The content gives a top-notch drawing education in such an easy and straightforward manner. This is a definite two thumbs up. You can’t go wrong with this purchase.

Finally I found a book that gives me an easy understanding of the foundation of drawing.
I love this book. We are doing one drawing every day. My child who was reluctant to "express himself" with drawing without any foundation over the topic, has developed a good and positive
approach towards drawing.

I am very impressed with this book. I've certainly grown in my ability to draw because of this textbook even though I haven't made it all the way through the book. It really helps you learn to see things in a new way which then helps you put it on paper. Highly recommended.
