This hand volume--filled with more than 350 illustrations--is designed especially for aspiring young artists and for those who simply love to draw. Sketching and Drawing for Children is a user-friendly drawing guide that will be the first choice of all beginning artists.

First, Genevieve Vaughan-Jackson teaches you the importance of seeing what you want to draw and knowing its construction before ever touching pencil to paper. Then, after learning the proper hand motions for fluid drawing, you'll start creating works of art--sketching simple objects such as wagons and vases, and later more difficult ones such as airplanes and horses.

Step by step, you will learn all the fundamentals of art, including basic shapes, proportion, perspectives, shading, and movement.
By following the concise, easy-to-read instructions and the many sample sketches, you'll be drawing everything from flowers and birds, to cars and basketball players, as well as snow-covered log cabins and wind-tossed sailboats on a stormy sea.

Sketching and Drawing for Children is sure to be a helping hand to all young people interested in developing their artistic talent.
