Review quote

"As an art educator, Jordan knows how to encourage creativity and confidence. With his approachable step-by-step and timed exercises, anyone can learn or improve their drawing skills. Even for the most reluctant learner, this book makes drawing approachable and possible. So, grab a pencil and start drawing!" --Megan Dehner, Senior Editor, The Art of Education University Magazine

"When I was a young and aspiring artist, I often looked to drawing tutorial books to build my skills, yet, those step-by-step tutorials only got me so far in my creative abilities. What sets 30-Minute Drawing for Beginners apart from those earlier references is that it provides equal parts guidance and creative freedom. It builds both skills and confidence in the emerging artist." --Sarah Ackermann, Executive Director of Teaching Innovation at Ball State University

"This book is excellent for going over basics and is built upon drawing fundamentals using a step-by-step process that all beginners can understand. Each and every lesson is easily understandable, methodical in building upon earlier lessons, and does not overcomplicate the process." --Susan Czechowski, Art Professor at Western Illinois University

"30-Minute Drawing for Beginners lays out a variety of exercises in simple, concise, easy-to-follow steps. Jordan DeWilde's experience teaching and his own skills as an artist are evident in the thoughtful presentation of the exercises in this book. If you have ever wanted to learn to draw or want to escape from the stresses of today's world and can find 30 minutes to explore another way of thinking, this book will help you on your way." --Dr. Edward O. Stewart, Retired Art Professor at Illinois State University
