Product Description:

Looking for a good drawing book? Let me introduce you to Mark Kistler's Draw Squad. This book is similar to the Drawing Textbook, but a lot more fleshed out (Mark was actually a student of Bruce McIntyre's and uses the same progression and techniques). You start out with the introductory tables, chairs, boxes, cakes, fishbowls, and work up to more difficult objects such as space-ships, houses, sawhorses, and characters. Can be used as a write-in workbook, or work exercises on separate paper. I like the book because it's simple, friendly, and instructive - and easier for a student to use himself (or herself). Besides that, each lesson is packed with "extras", cute little cartoon-like characters and also has samples of other Draw Squader's drawings. Happy penciling!

I previously used Drawing Textbook by Bruce McIntire, and this seemed like a logical next step to advance my kids drawing skills.

what art materials do I need for draw squad book?
User on Apr 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The author keeps the supplies simple (and humorous).
1. Paper - two spiral bound sketchbooks of at least 100 sheets each 8.5" x 11" is a good standard size. Like these:

2. Pencils - standard #2 pencils (can use mechanical with 2B lead)

3. Bananas (to eat while drawing)

4. Miscellaneous - he encourages experimentation. i.e. with a softer lead or a thick felt pen.

Draw Squad by Mark Kistler is the coolest art book ever! My kids are having so much fun with it�I can hardly get them to stop drawing! In fact I have my own sketchbook out too and I am drawing along with them I am using this with my eleventh grader and my seventh grader�the book is great for all ages even to adults The lessons which are cartoon-like are easy to follow and understand and have lots of fun humor thrown in by the author A systematic teaching of drawing is used where techniques are built upon a little at a time Lessons are given in foreshortening shading contour lines density overlapping shadows size and surface Lots of examples are shown The book is made where a student can draw directly in the book but the lessons can be completed in your own sketchbook instead which is what we are doing Amazing improvements in drawing can been seen within just a short time and most of all the kids and even I! enjoy it so much The author in his friendly manner encourages his �students� to keep a positive mental attitude�and it works We are learning so much and best of all it is pure fun!
