When children draw, they want to create an accurate likeness of the things they see.

The entertaining, hands-on lessons begin with contour drawing techniques and feature numerous exercises that show budding artists how to make basic shapes and forms, create the illusion of volume with light, use perspective and accurately draw people, animals, landscapes and more.
