Surpassing competitive titles which emphasize only technique and provide advice on how to draw, Drawing Basics goes beyond discussion of technique, emphasizing discovery and perception within a carefully structured context. Using perceptual responses as the springboard, students become aware of their personal artistic learning and development process - a balance of attitude, confidence, state of mind, and skill. All examples and illustrations contained in the text are student works, providing examples of others' accomplishments and allowing the student to set reasonable goals for their own work.
