Learning how to draw can be easy when you are shown correctly right from the start. So why not learn from the master teacher who is credited to have inspired Walt Disney to start drawing and pursue his animating career.
Author and illustrator Edwin George Lutz is the man, and he is famous for his method of breaking down complex illustrations into simple step-by-step stages that anyone can follow. Many fine artists and illustrators over the decades have used his technique, and this classic book will teach you how as well.
This current course has been derived from Lutz's century old book "What To Draw And How To Draw It" first published in 1913. We have made it into a workbook format, with blank practice pages to do the drawing exercises. Of course you can use your own drawing paper if you don't want to draw in the book, and this will also prevent or minimize imprints of the pencil tip on other exercise pages. And for further drawing convenience the publisher grants permission to photocopy pages for personal use.     - Ideal gift for children.
In this remarkable course you will learn to draw a fantastic range of subjects and objects, from people and faces, through to animals, birds, insects, fish and many other different kinds of things, such as toys, buildings and landscapes.
This book is aimed at teaching children (although it's great for any beginner no matter the age), and the choice of pictures is designed to keep a child fascinated. There are over one hundred pictures to draw, and the method makes for a magical experience making drawing easy and delightfully interesting.
The book provides a step-by-step system that fixes the object in memory and develops naturally a physical skill and a memorized knowledge of proportion and form. Foreshortening and perspective, often bugbears to young artists, are overcome by the simplest progressive examples. Images are broken down into simple key-lines, which are then built upon with clear step-by-step instructions, resulting in impressive drawings.
Instructions are very brief, for the key-lines of each object tell their own story and the child is entranced by the results soon gained. The youngest child may grasp the magic progress of this way of working and he or she will quickly learn to draw the picture naturally and well.
We think anyone who applies the knowledge contained within this course will be delighted with their results, and the speed and ease at which they attain them.
