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.

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 own a copy of this book, copyrighted 1991. I showed it to my grandson, who is a budding artist. He liked it. But I want to keep my copy to use with several other grandchildren, as well. So I looked for this book online. This later edition is offered here at the best price I could find.

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.

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.

Good Basic Drawing Principles
This book covers basic drawing principles and my children have made great progress and gained confidence as we've worked through this book together. I've used it with my teenagers down to my 6 year old.

Drawing Textbook
I used this book with my children when we home schooled 25 years ago. It is simple enough for complete novices to use, and we all enjoyed the success we felt with each of the exercises we did. I bought this copy of the book for my 8-year-old grandson, who shows promising artistic talent. So far, he is enjoying it a lot. Rainbow Resource sent it out in exactly the time they promised, and their price was the best I found on the Internet.
