Going step-by-step and covering all the basics of drawing such as perspective, proportion, line, ellipses, and more, this is a complete and encouraging program.

Since the book is consumable, you can draw your assignment right in the space provided or photocopy the pages so the book will last longer. You'll draw portraits, still life, and nature, improving all the time. Children in the middle grades could also use How Great Thou Art if they feel ready for a more serious drawing book. Revised, the book includes over 85 lessons on 118 pages and an additional 25 blank pages for sketching. Bible verses and inspirational quotes are included throughout the book. Five pen and ink cards are included with the book. Recommended supplies include 3 drawing pencils (HB,2B,4B), a pencil sharpener, an extra fine black marker pen, 1 kneaded eraser,a calligraphy marker pen (medium sized), and a 12" ruler.

    The Lamb's Book of Art is an excellent starting point for any beginning artist. The lessons and instructions are easy to follow and could be used for self-study for an older child. A variety of concepts are taught like drawing, color theory, portraits, anatomy, nature studies, cartooning, perspective, shading, lettering, and more. The lessons are fun, and you won't find yourself getting bored with monotonous activities. Plus, the book comes from a Christian publisher and Bible verses accompany most lessons. Art doesn't have to be hopeless! Lessons are reproducible for in home use and there are plenty of blank pages in the book to create art on.

    This book was revised in 2006 and is higher quality than the original. The basic lessons and format are the same, but there are now 168 pages instead of 128, with easier to read text and a fun set of five "marker cards" for additional assignments. Instead of the spiral binding of the original book, this edition sports a perfect binding. With this upgraded edition, they've taken a good thing and made it even better.

    This book could make a wonderful art program for younger students, incorporating both art appreciation and projects in a beautiful, easy to use format. The book features 22 impressive works of art from around the world and from a variety of periods. Each work is shown on a spread of pages along with a few short, interesting paragraphs of information about the work itself, the techniques used, and the artist who created it. Then you flip the page to see how you can imitate that work and style using simple materials and methods. For example, the first work highlighted is Van Gogh's "The Starry Night." After looking at the painting and reading about it, you turn to the next page, which has step-by-step directions to help you make your own swirly landscape using thick paints and a plastic fork. In six steps you go from drawing a simple landscape sketch, adding color, and using the fork to manipulate the paint into swirly patterns like those found in Van Gogh's painting. The end products are very attractive, and completing the projects will help students remember the distinctive styles of the artists they've studied. The projects pages are very colorful and offer beautiful illustrations of the finished projects to give students a visual aid. Throughout the 22 works/projects, students will be introduced to 3-D art, paintings, abstract art, prints, collages, Chinese brush painting, and other styles/types of art for a well-rounded but fun early art education.

    If you've purchased and enjoyed the Usborne Book of Art Ideas, the Usborne Book of Art Skills, and the Usborne Book of Art Projects, then this volume is too late for you, but if you are thinking about buying one or more of those books, or if you've already bought one and want the other two, WAIT! This book houses all three of the books in one complete volume, for about the same cost as two of the single books. You know what that means - over 400 wonderful activities are described on colorful, glossy pages. The activities are still listed by book, not intermingled, so there are actually three distinct "books" in this one. Hardcover, 288 pages. - Melissa

    When you take in the 600+ page count, the large trim size, and the glossy, full-color pages packed with gorgeous art reproductions, I feel that the price on this "coffee-table-quality" art book is extremely reasonable. After an opening chapter on looking at art and understanding basic art concepts (subject and composition, light and shade, etc.), the rest of the chapters progress chronologically from prehistory to the present day. Within each chapter specific geographical areas, cultures or artistic movements are covered. Most chapters focus on a group of artists that represent that time period or style, each with a short biography or biographical information and examples of their artwork. Often there are "closer looks" where the reader is invited to zoom in on a particular segment of a painting to appreciate a technique or a special feature. Occasionally, a themed page with a black background features a collection of works by different artists based around a similar subject, such as children or work. Like other DK books, the pages are packed with captioned full-color art reproductions. It's easy to believe that over 2,500 works are featured in this hefty volume! The art reproductions vary widely in size; some of them are page-size, while others take up only a few inches of space. Whether you use this as an art reference or a coffee table book, it's almost irresistible to browse. This has been a popular book around our office as well; its visual appeal is undeniable! One important note: although the book is an excellent reference, it is not geared specifically for children. There are plenty of nudes and partial nudes throughout the book. You will want to "edit" with sticky notes or selectively preview which pages you use with your children depending on their ages and your own family preferences. 612 pages, hc. - Jess

    A one semester art course that can be done independently by students will please many parents, especially if they are not too artsy themselves.

    Stenciling is fun for everyone, even those who feel they have little artistic ability, and this Klutz book will show you how stenciling truly can be an art. Everything you need to get started is here, including eight pigment ink pads, eight foam-tip dabbers, a black felt pen, and 4 pull-out plastic sheets that contain 72 stencil shapes. There are several different techniques explained in the 48-page book and blank practice pages allow you to try them all out. With stencils of basic shapes like squares, ovals, and teardrops, as well as extra fun stencils of foliage, animals, insects, and more, you'll be sure to have a good time putting together all kinds of fun scenes. Please note that the ink is permanent and will stain most fabric, so kids will have to be careful.

    My first thought when I skimmed this book was, "You know, if you didn't have the time to devote to a full-fledged art curriculum, this would be an excellent resource!" And it is! Flexible for use with multiple grade levels, this art activity book features 40 lessons that cover the elements of art and design through inventive, open-ended projects that include tie-ins to learning about famous artists too! Seven chapters introduce the concepts of line, shape, texture, color, value, form and space through basic instruction and multiple activities. For example, let's look at the first chapter on line. Two pages of text introduce the concept and show examples of different types of line, and how they are used in art. The following projects include: making a crayon-resist painting of a spider web to appreciate linear design, making a decorative line design by filling in an outline of an object with small "patches" of lines in patterns, making a line drawing of an imaginary machine, like Leonardo da Vinci (complete with notes written backwards!), using a grid to make a drawing, drawing a musical instrument (while listening to music), then drawing lines around the instrument inspired by the music, and making a kaleidoscope line design by making a symmetrical design on a Styrofoam tray, then printing a block of the design. Projects in the other six chapters are just as inventive and creative, and I love the little "Meet the Masters" sections here and there that share information on a famous artist and their artistic style. The title sums it up – the projects are so well focused that children will likely create impressive works as they learn the elements of design! Although some of the projects call for specific items (acrylic spray, vermiculite, plaster of Paris, or grass seed), these don't appear to be too difficult to find and most of the projects do rely on the "basics" – construction paper, scissors, crayons, tempera paint, watercolors, colored pencils, and markers. Whether you are just considering incorporating art into your curriculum regularly, or you are looking for enjoyable art projects based on the elements of design, this is an "amazing" resource. 128 pgs. – Jess
