Prismacolor Scholars (12 color set)
Both art text and workbook, this large volume contains 260 daily lessons and can be used over a span of years. While over 100 lessons deal with drawing, Barry has branched out into other areas as well, including color, penmanship, art appreciation, measurement, and painting. Most of the student's work is done in the book, but the painting lessons use sturdy posterboard cards (referred to as "paint packs") which come with the book. Materials needed include a 2B or 4B drawing pencil, kneaded eraser, ruler, black extra-fine point marker pen, colored pencils (12),ketch book, poster board, paint brushes (3 or 4), and acrylic paints (2-oz. of red, blue, yellow and white). A well-rounded course with lots of variety. 310 pgs.
