Product description

Aspiring artists can capture the beauty of ballet as they use this beginner's drawing guide. Simplicity and practice are the keys. The step-by-step exercises are easy to follow -- making this an ideal book for children -- and each "how-to" page is followed by a blank page useful for sketches. With easy-to-follow techniques, this popular Dover author helps young hands create 30 different pictures: dancers lacing ballet shoes, working at the barre, warming up and stretching, and executing arabesques, pirouettes, grand plies, and other positions. There's an assortment of stage-worthy accessories to draw, too, including festive tutus, hair wreaths, and costumes from such favorite ballets as "Swan Lake, Cinderella, "and" The Nutcracker."
