Description for Drawing (Art for Kids)

From Booklist

Gr. 5-8. This entry in the Art for Kids series offers an excellent introduction to the tools and techniques of drawing. Professional artist Temple's clear, encouraging text starts with the reminders that drawing begins with careful observation and that children, as well as adults, can be serious artists. The first chapter covers basic drawing materials, advice for observing details and shapes, and information on the differences of seeing with the right and left sides of the brain--a rare topic in an art guide for young people. Subsequent chapters discuss line, light, shadow, proportion, perspective, and human bodies and faces. Temple's accomplished drawings appear on nearly every cleanly designed page, and each section includes numerous exercises for practicing the accessible, well-presented techniques. She concludes with a chapter that encourages young artists to apply their new skills to wildly imagined scenes of their own. Comprehensive and written in clear language that never condescends to its young audience, this thoughtful guide contains plenty of information that will also be useful to older students (and adults) able to overlook the cover image of a middle-grade boy.
