A children's step-by-step guide to drawing that is practical, inspirational, educational, and fun. Beginning with simple skill instruction and building to more challenging projects, it is packed with practical activities and techniques, including how to draw lines, shade, sketch, and trace. A cutout jacket even lets kids draw their own cover so the book really is their own unique piece of art.
Once they've learned the basics, kids can follow the step-by-step instructions to draw their surroundings, people, animals, and more. With 16 pages of blank drawing space included, kids can try different approaches, such as illustrating stories and creating comic-book characters, and be inspired to explore and experiment with different styles.
Supporting STEAM education initiatives, How to Draw encourages kids to pick up a pencil, crayon, or pen, use their imagination, and learn how to draw the things they love.
