Product description


“For the beginner whose artistic passion awaits awakening and direction you are in luck. Claire Watson Garcia, the eminent artist and art educator has created an extraordinary book for you.  Easy to follow step-by-step guidance through varieties of drawing techniques will take you from the uncertainty of beginning into a world of newfound self-confidence.   With Claire’s book, you are on the runway to a new fearless clarity to approach and draw any subject.”
—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
