Summary

For undergraduate courses in Drawing and Figure Drawing. A comprehensive text for drawing students of all levels.  The fouth edition of Drawing: Space, Form and Expression is designed to address the needs of undergraduate drawing students from beginning through advanced levels. This highly readable text is arranged in three sections, which each reflect the essential aspects of the process of drawing. The text addresses spatial and compositional organization, strategies for depicting three-dimensional form and light, and features an extended look at the way subject matter and form interact to produce content. Based on the premise that drawing is an art form in its own right, this text combines comprehensive coverage of traditional approaches to observational drawing with advanced theory.
