Publisher Description:

Geography is essential to a child's education. And basic to that study is a simple outline of states, countries and continents. In Draw Europe I have tried to give students an easy introduction to committing the map of Europe to memory. Through simple, step-by-step instructions, students learn to draw each country as it connects to its neighbors and, with a little practice, will be able to draw Europe as a whole.

Category Description for ArtK12 Draw the World Series:

Kids hear and read names of places in connection to history, people, events, books, vacation plans - everywhere! But without an understanding of geography, all places only mean "somewhere." This series aims to help children commit maps of regions to memory. With simple, fun instructions, children start at one end of a region and work their way around until they can easily draw the whole region from memory. Pages have the featured state or country name at the top, tan backgrounds and a colorful border across the bottom featuring buildings, landmarks, animals, and vehicles representative of the region. The middle of each page holds the surrounding states/countries/features learned so far, bordered in black and labeled with their abbreviation (states) or name (countries, major bodies of water), and the one being learned bordered in red along with memorable instructions for drawing it. For example, Learn to Draw Africa begins with drawing the Red Sea: "At the top, right side of the paper (not too close to the edge), begin with the Red Sea. It's easy to draw; it looks like a slug oozing its way up toward the top of the page." From there you'll add countries moving westward and then south, one at a time, until you can draw the whole continent! Text is a handwritten font and outlines are simple sketches. Though an actual map is always a nice resource, these simplified shapes will be much easier for young students to draw than all those little nooks and bumps! To contrast this series with the Drawing Around the World series, this book's sole focus is being able to draw the region and uses simple shapes, while Drawing Around the World also includes state/country facts and information, review of state/country names, blank map labeling, and more exact borders. Drawing Around the World is a write-in series, while you will practice these books with your own paper. Books run approximately 65 pages, measure 8.5"x11", sc. - Steph

Purchased to help my child draw more quickly for CC Challenge A. My hope is for him to have more focus on adding capitals and features.

We used Draw Africa last year and liked it. So we are going to do Europe this year.

I have heard great things about these books. We are learning European geography in our homeschooling co-op, and this book will be a great edition to our study at home.

It is an easy way to learn geography
Katie F on Aug 30, 2017
My daughter loves the ArtK12 geography drawing books. She knows the specifics of the US and Canada better than anyone I know. So now we're are moving on to Europe and then Asia. These books are a great addition to any geography or history curriculum, especially if you have a student that loves to draw.

What countries are included in Draw Europe?
A shopper on May 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It's quite a few to list, but here goes: Western Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Serbia, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia, Herzegovina, Croatia, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Austria, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Italy (plus Sicily, Sardinia), Vatican City, France, Monaco, Spain, Andorra, Portugal, United Kingdom, Ireland, Iceland. A good number of those are tiny, independent countries. Drawings also Includes all the surrounding oceans, seas, channels, bays, etc. The only thing they didn't include that I had my child also put in was the tiny island of Malta (we're using this as a supplement to another geography curriculum).
