The only drawing book children need to become the artists they want to be!

“This is a gold mine of information.”Library Media Connection

When children draw, they want to create an accurate likeness of the things they see. With this imaginative, informative, and amply illustrated guide, it's amazingly easy for kids to make their art dreams come true. The entertaining, hands-on lessons begin with contour drawing techniques and feature numerous exercises that show budding artists how to make basic shapes and forms, create the illusion of volume with light, use perspective, and accurately draw people, animals, landscapes, and more.

About the Author:

Kathryn Temple is a celebrated visual artist and writer who has taught art to children in school and camp settings. Her paintings have been exhibited in dozens of group and solo shows, have earned her artist grants and residences, and can be found in private and corporate collections throughout the country. She is also the author and illustrator of Art for Kids: Drawing in Color (also Sterling), and lives in Asheville, NC.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7–This first-class introduction to essential drawing techniques builds from the starting points of lines and simple shapes. Typically, books for this audience present step-by-step directions for rendering specific objects, animals, or people; with Temple's work, children can use the skills taught here to go beyond the examples and draw their own unique illustrations. The author limits the scope of the book to drawing with pencils. Eight concise chapters explore seeing with artist's eyes, line drawing, light and shadow, proportion and scale, perspective, drawing faces, drawing bodies, and using imagination. The succinct text reads smoothly and is written in a clear, understandable style. Sample sketches and crisp, color photographs extend the text and often serve as the basis for many purposeful exercises. These illustrations are precisely placed with the appropriate corresponding text and are enhanced by supplementary details that have been highlighted with sweeps of color. Librarians looking for materials that focus more on the process of drawing than on the product will find this refreshing selection to be a useful resource for budding artists.–Lynn K. Vanca, Akron-Summit County Public Library, Richfield, OH
