Product Description:

If I could express the essence of this enlightened book in one phrase it would be to quote the author, Mona Brookes (internationally acclaimed art educator and founder of Monart Drawing School): "designed to encourage you to draw for yourself. The title says it all and is ideal for teens and adult beginners who want to enjoy drawing, learn fundamentals and discover their true potential. Brookes' style is not a step-by-step project book or for those wanting to be a professional artist, but a psychological exploration of your inner mind and feelings mixed with pure enthusiasm. The book's drawings and examples are a progression of students' artwork as they work through her method of teachingthey were either terrified of drawing, had very basic skills or never could draw the way they wanted. The book is very copy heavy, but easy to read. It does a wonderful job of exploring various drawing media, as well as explaining stylesabstraction, flat, realistic, perspectiveand helps the new artist develop a style their own. The book has a helpful list of basic supplies to get started and optional list for further exploration. Each concept presented is followed by a project with instructions, so you read and then apply. The book should be used in progression from start to finish as each concept builds on the next. There is value to glean from this book even if you only have time to read without doing the projects. 250 pgs, 7.5 x 9 pb. ~ Emily

Son is interested in drawing.

I find we lack the time, resources and, frankly the desire on my kids' part, to seek outside art classes. So, I hope this book will be engaging and draw them in (no pun intended) to develop their artistic talent.
