Summary

Drawing: A Sketch and Textbook combines essential content from a basic drawing textbook with the ample blank space of a sketchbook so that students can immediately practice what they learn. Divided into three parts--the basics, elements of drawings, and the creative process--this innovative textbook/sketchbook aims to teach students how to draw by actively engaging them in practical projects.
