Pumpkin is the artist of the family and loves getting books that teach him new techniques. He keeps all his drawings into a big 3 ring binder so he can show them off. The binder goes with him everywhere even school. I love his creativity and his unique drawing style. I am so excited and can not wait to give him the Draw Like This! book for Christmas.
I love that the "Draw Like This!" book is a fully illustrated guide to drawing. It walks you through simple prompts and challenges, helping you to learn to draw from the inside out. I like books like this for Pumpkin because he has a hard time with reading so the illustrations steps are perfect for him.
Topics that are covered in the book are:
~ Grid drawing
~ 2-point perspective
~ Negative space
~ Op Art
~ The human face and body
~ Elements of design
~ Shape, form and line
~ Color and texture
I really like that the book also has places for you to practice what is being taught. I think this will be a great tool for Pumpkin to expand his artistic abilities. He can practice in the book before actually trying to draw the picture on paper. He gets very upset if he messes his pictures up. This book would also make a great gift for anyone who loves to draw or doodle. Whether you are young or old this book will teach you something new about drawing and help build your skills.
Do you like to draw or have someone in your family who does? If you do I would recommend picking this book up for them as a gift!
