Drawing for the Absolute and Utter Beginner, Revised: 15th Anniversary Edition Kindle Edition
About the Author
—David A. Dunlop, artist, teacher, lecturer, and Emmy Award-winning TV host
"This wonderful new version is as much a labor of true love as was the original, and a beautiful roadmap that one can reference on the path to creativity."
— Angela Wood, Publisher, Blogger, Creative Director, inventivekids.com, Circle Media Inc.
Praise for the first edition:
"This is simply the best beginners' drawing book available. Garcia gently teaches how to see like an artist and then leads the student from creative exercises (recording shapes upside down), through "turning edges into objects," and finally to detailed still life and facial drawings." --Library Journal --This text refers to the paperback edition.

For “new” beginners - this edition offers the superb organization and lucid explanations that characterize Claire’s first edition. Her exercises, tips and sample drawings continue to reflect her deep understanding of the ambitions (and frustrations) of new artists. Her students’ comments which accompany their drawings helpfully reinforce Claire’s lessons. They inspired me to think, “I can do it, too."
For those who already know Claire’s first book, this extensively revised version is well worth its bargain price. She has included new chapters on “Adding Dimension to Contour Drawing” and “Drawing the Face - Three-Quarter View”. Her edits and additions provide greater flow, logic and clarity. And her revised graphics and layout are cleaner, more spacious and even better correlated with her text.
In short, I believe this is a great book for beginners, and can carry them further than her first edition. Aspiring artists should be grateful that Claire has given us the benefit of her last 15 years of teaching.
